Bronze & Silver Expeditions for Westholmers

During the Autumn term, fifty four Year 11 students successfully completed their final Bronze DofE expeditions in the White Peak area of Derbyshire. The dry weather was appreciated by all and they experienced stunning views over Monsal Dale and Lathkill Dale.   One of their assessors described the girls as ”˜a credit to themselves and the school’.

During the October half term holiday, Sixth Form Silver participants enjoyed the picturesque villages of the Forest of Bowland.   Although no rain fell, the already muddy ground often made walking quite difficult.   However, the girls coped well with this and the freezing overnight temperatures.   Well done to all participants!
