Duke of Edinburgh Qualifying Expedition

Congratulations to all of the pupils who took part in the Bronze and Silver DofE qualifying expedition at Long Mynd over the weekend. We are incredibly proud to announce that all 33 pupils passed with flying colours. Pupils were required to walk for 6 hours per day for their Bronze qualification and covered 26km with all their own equipment in extremely mixed weather conditions. The Silver qualification required the pupils to be out for 7 hours per day and they managed to cover a magnificent 50km including a camp under ‘wild camping’ conditions. All pupils worked extremely well within their teams in order to overcome all the challenges they faced over the weekend and showed strength, determination and resilience. Thank you to everyone involved in making it such a successful weekend.

Please can we remind pupils to complete the rest of their DofE sections and upload assessors reports by the end of term in order to fully complete their award for presentation in September.
