DofE bronze award success

Tuesday 22nd May 2018

50 Queen Anne’s girls once again displayed their resilience, team work and individual skills over two very tough Bronze Award DofE expeditions.

Back in March the girls overcame some cold conditions learning new skills during their three day practice expedition located in Ashdown Forest, Sussex. All their instructors heaped high praise on the girls being extremely impressed with their willingness and indomitable spirit despite being cold and very tired at times.

Dougie (Sam Sykes Ltd Expedition Manager) said of the girls “Queen Anne’s girls are a pleasure to be with all the time and tackle every obstacle with determination and guts”


Having taken on the wintery March elements, the girls moved onto the Chilterns this weekend and completed their qualifying expedition in the beautiful, but at times very wet Oxfordshire countryside. The group had to manage themselves, and their equipment, through a mix of torrential rain and energy sapping sun, yet they all came out at the other end successfully navigating to the finishing line at Watlington Hill Farm.


Mr Blunt would like to say a very big thank you to Miss Toogood, Mrs Eagle and Miss Marsh for giving up their weekends to support the expeditions and the girls.
