Six Year 10 students embarked on their bronze Duke of Edinburgh expedition last weekend in glorious sunshine (if not a little chilly northerly wind).

The group started bright and early at Sennen cove, walking north along one of the UK’s most spectacular coastlines.

The group made fantastic progress and completed a project about Cornwall’s unique Cornish landscape along the way. After a beautiful sunset over the Atlantic and a rather chilly camp, the girls continued their expedition on day two with some challenging navigation over the moorland of west Penwith, including a visit to the Neolithic site Mên-an-Tol.

On Sunday afternoon, the whole team completed their gruelling expedition in high spirits, all looking forward to a bath and an early night!

Mr Leech, the leader of Duke of Edinburgh, said, “These students have worked extremely well as a team and we are really proud of them as a school. I only hope they continue with the award scheme as they are ready-made to progress onto silver and beyond.”
