The Gold DofE teams enjoyed a practice 16km walk in the Brecon Beacons...

The Duke of Edinburgh Award is a challenging and engaging way for 14 to 24 year-olds to volunteer, challenge themselves to learn new skills and physically test themselves during their expeditions.

On Sunday, twelve L6th Form pupils travelled to the Brecon Beacons for a Gold level DofE training day to practice their navigational skills, and work on their fitness, particularly focusing on getting used to the more challenging terrain and incline. The three groups started off the day bright and early with a 7.30am departure and enjoyed a 2½ hour minibus drive to the Brecon Beacons. Albeit a long journey, we were very fortunate with the clear conditions and no rain! In total we walked roughly 16km with some challenging inclines including Pen y Fan and Corn du. With the help from various members of staff and two enthusiastic dogs, all three groups managed to return to the minibus in good time and with a very quiet bus journey back to school, we could catch up on some well-deserved sleep.
