During Curriculum Enrichment Week, the Fourth Form completed their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Expedition.
In groups of five or six, pupils walked and camped overnight in the Chilterns. In order to pass this part of the qualification they were required to complete a circuit of approximately 15km over the two days carrying packs containing all the camping equipment, food and water that they needed.
The pupils coped admirably with the scorching weather maintaining a sensible pace and keeping hydrated. Mr Stuart and the D of E staff were impressed by the teamwork, navigational and leadership skills demonstrated and were pleased but not surprised when all those who completed the expedition were passed by their assessor.
