Students complete Silver Duke of Edinburgh Expedition

Well done to 14 Year 12 students who successfully completed their Silver Duke of Edinburgh Expedition last weekend, supervised by expedition leaders and teachers, Mrs Kirby and Mr Taylor. The students completed their expedition near Banbury, Oxfordshire, and walked approximately 15 kilometres each day over a period of 7 hours.

Despite the wet weather, the students were keen to start the expedition on their departure from school at 7am on Saturday morning. They were divided into 2 groups with group 1 studying the weather, and group 2 studying churches during the expedition. The groups camped at Fir Tree Farm at Warmington on Saturday evening, and camped at Mollington on Sunday evening.

Students carried all their equipment, including their tents and cooking equipment, throughout the weekend and used their map reading and navigational skills successfully.

Staff praised the groups on their return, stating that they were a pleasure to supervise on such a challenging expedition.

Well done to all students who participated!
