Continuing their D of E adventures, pupils from Year Ten working towards their Bronze award enjoyed their first two day expedition this week.

Heading out into the Ribble Valley, pupils successfully completed a 30km journey from Whitewell to Sawley, with an overnight camp at Newton. For many this was a journey of new experiences; cooking themselves a meal, carrying all their equipment, building their own tent for the night and of course some challenging walking in a wide variety of weather.

Pupils rose to the challenge and although they found it difficult at times, maintained a positive approach throughout and enjoyed the experience.

They are now looking forward to their final assessed expedition which will take place next weekend in the more remote terrain of the Yorkshire Dales.  Best of luck everyone!
