This weekend our bronze and silver Duke of Edinburgh’s Award groups enjoyed the great weather as they headed out into the Ribble Valley to undertake their expeditions.

Our year 11 pupils successfully completed their final bronze expedition with a two day hike from Newton to Holden and back, tackling Easington Fell in between.

They showed great positive spirit and excellent navigation skills, and we were very proud of all of them.

With things a little different this year, pupils camped in their own gardens at home and some even cooked their expedition meals for their families!

Our returning silver group were also out on their three day practice expedition, and it was wonderful to see them all again, reunited for their challenge which they took on with skill and excellent teamwork.  They will complete their final expedition in two weeks time.

Well done to all who took part, and many thanks to our DofE volunteers who gave up their weekends to allow pupils to enjoy time outdoors and some great adventures.
