News from Outdoor Education

The Outdoor Education department at The Priory School has been celebrating the news that our DofE completion rate has reached 119%, putting us first in North Herts and third in the entire UK! This very welcome news has spurred us on as we enter this year’s expedition season.

So far we have had two hugely successfully trips go out — a Silver/Gold practice to the Peak District and the Bronze practice to Henlow. The students on each trip have again surpassed all expectations with their positivity and resilience, even when faced with torrential downpours and thick fog. We are also facing the final preparations for the World Challenge expeditions to Mongolia and Morocco this summer. The Mongolia team should be receiving their visas shortly, whilst both teams have now had their projects confirmed and the final itineraries are live on myworldchallenge. Here’s looking forward to the Gold/Silver Qualifier in the Lake District and the Bronze Qualifier at Hudnall Park!
