We are incredibly proud of our students who took part in last week’s Ten Tors Challenge and of the staff who trained and supported them.
It was great to see all the teams finishing after 2 years without the event. They all did so well in this very odd year. We have distributed these photos and names to local press and through our many media channels to give all the Ten Tors and Jubilee Challenge participants the recognition that they deserve.
