Silver and Gold Duke of Edinburgh Expeditions

​The summer holidays are the time when many students in the Upper Fifth and Sixth Form complete their Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme Expeditions. Luckily they took place in the second half of the holidays and therefore the participants did not suffer too badly from the heat.

The summer holidays are the time when many students in the Upper Fifth and Sixth Form complete their Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme Expeditions. Luckily they took place in the second half of the holidays and therefore the participants did not suffer too badly from the heat. However, they did face rain, mist, horses, sheep, cows and many badly marked paths on their travels.

25 Upper Fifth students spent the three days just before GCSE results day, walking the hills of the Long Mynd and Wenlock Edge to complete their Silver test expedition. 20 of the Upper Sixth completed their practice and test Gold expeditions in Yorkshire, which lasted four days and three nights. Congratulations to all Silver and Gold participants.
