Nine students from Wrenn School recently completed their Duke of Edinburgh Gold expedition in the Lake District.
During their five days they braved the elements and the tough walking conditions while carrying their tent, food, cooking equipment, clothes and all other equipment on their backs.
The expedition is the final component of their Duke of Edinburgh Gold award which the students have been working on for the past twelve months following completion of their Bronze and Silver awards. Sarah Earl, Duke of Edinburgh Leader at Wrenn School, said: “This expedition is the culmination of years of hard work and planning on behalf of these exceptional young people who overcame this final hurdle with determination, resilience and an unbreakable team spirit. The Duke of Edinburgh award is internationally recognised and valued by universities and employers as an indicator of commitment and personal achievement and we’re proud to be in a position where we offer Bronze, Silver and Gold programmes to all of our students.”
