Year 11 Duke of Edinburgh Assessed Expedition

Towards the end of the summer holidays, pupils in Year 11 who had just received their GCSE results travelled to the Brecon Beacons for their Silver Assessed Duke of Edinburgh’s Award expedition.

Though the route was more physically challenging from their Practice expedition, they were fortunate with the incredibly good weather and experienced some amazing views across Sugar Loaf summit and Stone Castle near Hereford.

Having learnt how to cook, pitch a tent and navigate using a compass and a map (a very robust method!) from their Practice expedition, they were able to apply their skills to successfully complete their 3-day hike.
