July 2021 Update
After the trials of the past 12 months plus, we were delighted to be in a position to offer the expedition section to last year’s students who had enrolled onto the award. With 8 of the Y11 students completing their Bronze walking expedition on 18th and 19th June. The expedition was adapted to happen in a Covid safe way and the students completed day 1 of their expedition around the Welwyn and Lemsford area and then on day 2 ventured further afield towards Ashridge estate. Despite the very wet weather students had a fantastic time.
We also managed to enrol 27 of Y10 students in late 2020. Again, we were unsure whether an expedition would be able to go ahead when lockdown happened in January but thankfully restrictions eased and all 27 students were able to participate in their Bronze Walking Expedition. They participated in their expedition on 2nd and 3rd July walking similar routes to the Y11’s previously. This group got better weather and managed to stay dry for most of the weekend. All students were fantastic and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
