Sixth-Formers brave Lake District for DofE Gold Expedition

During half term, 16 Sixth-Formers completed their Duke of Edinburgh Gold Expedition in the Lake District.

Whilst the weather favoured them for the majority of their four days in the North West, the 70km walk was completed on challenging terrain with some considerable hills to walk up and down.

All enjoyed the comradery and sense of achievement in finishing the expedition along with their trustee Pop Head mascot Gimli to keep them company, and fulfilled the requirements to pass this section of their award.
