Bronze Duke of Edinburgh’ Award expeditions

It is fantastic to see so many students at Harton challenging themselves and getting involved in the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and recently we have been doing the expedition section which certainly takes students out of their comfort zone and challenges them in the great outdoors. Close to 80 students over four weekends will be completing their training and qualifying expeditions in the Hadrian’s Wall and Teesdale area. It has been great to see all the student’s learning so many new skills and about themselves when the going gets tough. We already have another 70 students signed up for next year which is great but none of this would be possible without the staff who give so generously of their time to support all parts of the award.
