Students from Key Stage 4 at Brent Knoll have the opportunity to take part in the Duke of Edinburgh Award as part of our Out of School Hours Learning programme. Recently, a group of undertook the practice run of the expedition part of their Award.
To receive the Duke of Edinburgh Award, students must complete activities involving volunteering, physical activity and developing skills as well as a two day expedition!
Although the practice expedition was hard work, all the students involved gained valuable skills in orienteering and survival. The final expedition will be later in the year.
