Gold Plus Trip

Seven sixth formers who already have achieved their Gold DofE enjoyed climbing in the Lakes before Christmas, ably led by First 4 Adventure UK.

 At the end of the Autumn term, seven adventurous sixth formers, along with Mrs Martin and Andy Rowlinson from First 4 Adventure UK, set off for Ambleside in the Lake District. This is an annual trip for girls that have already completed their Gold DofE Expedition and want to do more in the outdoors. Everyone had two great days walking In the South East Lakes, plus an evening climbing at a centre in Ambleside. The girls cooked together one night, made all the lunches and everyone enjoyed the warmth and hospitality of Ambleside Youth Hostel as well as the much needed drying rooms for all the very wet kit. It was a great trip because everyone knew each other so well and enjoyed each other's company.
