Pupils have been working hard to complete their Duke of Edinburgh awards this term


Pupils have been busy working towards completion of their bronze DofE award this term, most just needing assessor reports for the final two sections. The past two weekends have seen seventy-two Year 10 pupils completing their assessment expedition over two days in the surrounding North Norfolk countryside. Each weekend there were six groups of boys/girls covering six different routes finishing at Kelling Heath camp site.


Year 11 pupils have spent the Lent term completing preparation and planning for their assessment expedition which will take place in the Yorkshire Dales next term. All pupils should have completed the volunteering, physical and skills section by the end of the Lent term.


Year 12 pupils are packed and ready to go to the Peak District at the end of term to complete their gold practice expedition. Five groups (29 pupils), will be based in the Hope and Edale valley.

Year 13 pupils have worked very hard to complete all sections of their award which they have been working towards for the last eighteen months. At this stage as a group, they are ahead of schedule and many already have had their gold award approved by the DofE.
