Since 2015, we have been running the Duke of Edinburgh Award. With a £9,887 grant from the Big Lottery Fund, we introduced our first cohort to the Bronze award.
Each year our cohort size has increased. In 2016/17 we had 55 students enrolled on the Bronze award and started our first Silver award.
The funding allowed us to purchase the essential camping equipment we needed for the expeditions such as tents, trangias, backpacks and much more.
Expeditions so far have seen students exploring Ashdown Forest, Danbury and the South Downs.
