All the girls passed their two day assessment covering a whole array of different standards to be reached. Generally, navigation was hugely impressive and the whole group impressed with competent camp craft and set the bar when it came to leadership and a sense of togetherness. Mr Blunt and Miss Marsh could not have been prouder of the girls. Mr Blunt reported back.

Queen Anne’s girls are not only resilient and amazingly cheerful in the outdoors but they are absolutely thoroughly decent young people who make my day whenever I am with them.’


Mr Blunt would like to thank Miss Marsh for supporting the girls throughout the weekend. Miss Marsh walked the entire route acting as a great role model to the girls.
