Duke of Edinburgh Expedition last weekend

We are delighted to report that last weekend's expedition to Navacerrada was a great success, with both Bronze Award participants (Year 10) and Silver Award participants (Year 11) performing admirably throughout.

The Runnymede participants approached the challenges of the weekend with enthusiasm, determination and good humour. Some teething issues in map-reading, tent-pitching and cooking skills were occasionally experienced, but the trip provided an ideal learning opportunity for pupils ahead of their official expeditions in coming months.

The Bronze Award participants will have their official qualifying expedition on Monday 11th and Tuesday 12th June, while the Silver Award participants will have theirs from Friday 14th to Sunday 16th September.

While there have been tired bodies to be seen around the school this week (pupils and staff!), we were pleased that all participants attended lessons punctually on Monday. We’d like to thank the teachers for their patience and understanding.
