Trips & Outings

We are all about making after school FUN for our pupils and what better way than getting out and about!

Duke of Edinburgh

Pupils in Year 9 to 13 are given the opportunity to take part in the prestigious Duke of Edinburgh qualification from bronze to gold level. Each year we have over 40 students undertake Bronze & Silver Award and 21 students for Gold Award. Miss Porschke, Mr Fenner, Miss McKevitt and Mr Hussey are there alongside the students braving the British weather and countryside to steer our pupils through a wide range of challenges and expeditions to ensure that they meet the DofE qualification criteria. They learn to carry rucksacks bigger than themselves in some cases, set up camps amongst Britain’s nosey wildlife and prepare for future festival experiences by wading through fields of mud but all for what can be described by this adventurous lot as ‘boss’.  The picture shows our first ever completed Gold group that were invited to St James Palace to receive their awards from HRH Earl of Wessex in December 2016. What an achievement!
