A record 25 boys (21 Year 12’s, 4 Year 13’s) completed their Gold DofE qualifying expedition in the Lake District in some extraordinary weather. The heatwave throughout the UK in early July provided some spectacularly clear days and excellent views for the boys. However, the heat also provided challenges with keeping fluids up and extra water stops and/or distilling tablets needed to be used to keep drinking water topped up. The boys also chose to make very early starts, first groups away at 5:30am, in order to take advantage of the cooler temperatures. I was immensely proud of their efforts as I’d set them a challenging route where most days they had to ascend over 1000m and travel around 20 Km. Their assessor was very impressed and they all passed with flying colours.
