A GROUP of King’s Ely Senior’s Year 9 Ely Scheme Outdoor Education students returned from their Level 1 Walking and Navigation Derbyshire Trip on April 9th.

The students received tailored tuition from their external freelance staff team leaders for three days to prepare them for their two-day expedition at the end of the course.

Director of Outdoor Education at King’s Ely Senior, Sophie Cheng, said: “The students did fantastically and had perfect weather for the whole trip. We were based at Barn Farm Camping, Birchover, covering up to 15km a day and the expedition totalling 33-35km.

“Huge thank you to our wonderful Pupil Instructors, Charlie Watson and Alex Layfield, who were learning to teach and coach navigation alongside the team leaders. I would also like to thank the staff team: James Houlston, Richard Lovelock, Brett Ffitch, Matilda Scott and Joe Watson.”
