Students sign up for the Duke of Edinburgh Awards
Over 100 first year students attended a fun-filled Introductory Day for the DofE at the beginning of term, finding out about the Award, and meeting each other in team activities. They can sign up to Silver (with no previous experience necessary), or Gold (if they already have bronze or silver). For those who opt in the deadline for enrolment is Friday 24th September, and the Silver group will have their first expedition during October half term.
Silver Duke of Edinburgh - 39 of our second years on the Silver award spent a very hot three days in the Ashdown Forest proving their resilience when temperatures soared to 30 degrees. They found their way through 40km of routes, camping and cooking in small teams. Congratulations to every one of them who completed this expedition.
