Congratulations to the 26 Year 10 students who have successfully completed their expedition section of the Duke of Edinburgh award.  On the 9th and 10th May 2015 they ventured out bright and early on Saturday morning to undertake their practice expedition.  Unaware of the hills to come, they ventured out, undaunted.  A few weeks later, after enough time to almost forget the achy feet and shoulders, they were ready to complete the qualifying expedition.  They completed this with equal gusto and even had the energy and ingenuity to create a rounders pitch with various random objects and play a few games before bedtime.  The students showed a real sense of team spirit and determination and were highly complimented by all staff present on the expedition and the campsite owners.
