Many congratulations to Sixth Formers Brooke Bennetton, Abbie Brockway, Rebecca Kenny and Lydia Paine on the successful completion of their Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Award expedition. The four-day unaided trek across Dartmoor started on Saturday, 20 July, finishing on the afternoon of Tuesday, 23 July.
The school’s DofE staff teamed up with DofE Dorset to offer the prestigous gold award for the first time this year. We were particularly impressed with our team’s teamwork, dedication and enthusiasm, particularly as they were integrating with students from other local schools to enable them to undertake the expedition, which included the hottest day recorded on Dartmoor so far this year! All involved showed great determination and strength of character.
