No Challenge too big for these students!

April 27th, 2017 | School News

Students at Writhlington School thrive on hard work and challenge and this was certainly shown, as teams of students completed their final weekend of training on Dartmoor for the Ten Tors Challenge.  

This year 5 teams will be entering the annual Ten Tors challenge, competing against hundreds of teams across the South West. Teams will navigate their way across one of the toughest terrains in the country.

Outdoor Education doesn’t end there, this term will also see students completing their Bronze DofE assessments, training for their Silver DofE as well as completing various CCAT course with the CCF.

Head of Outdoor Education, Nathan Marshall commented:

‘We offer very unique opportunities for  our students. As well as DofE and Ten Tors, students have the opportunity to take part in different activities every weekend January until September. Students can go on courses that give them real qualifications in a range of sports recognised by the national governing bodies, they can take part in challenges that look amazing on their university applications. We are very passionate about OutDoor Education and that shows from the dedication of our staff who volunteer their weekends.’
