Duke of Edinburgh Silver Practise Expedition

Last week a group students from KS4 and 5, spent three amazing days in the Peak District on their Duke of Edinburgh Silver Practise Expedition. 

The walked for over 30 miles carrying their rucksacks containing tents, food and equipment, camped in temperatures that went down to minus two degrees centigrade, and developed their navigation skills. 

The support that they have shown towards each other was absolutely flabbergasting, and they have made the D of E leaders immensely proud. We wish them the very best of luck in their qualifying expedition this week!
