TWENTY-two Year 9 students headed to Thetford, Norfolk, for Level 1 Hill Walking and Navigation training earlier this month (March) – navigating a 22km route, which included sections of Peddars Way.

James Houlston, Director of Outdoor Education at King’s Ely, said: “The pupils were split into six groups and skills that they used and learnt throughout the day included basic navigation and learning to walk at set speeds.

“All of the students did extremely well, especially as the weather closed in during the afternoon, and they all arrived at their finishing point bang on time.

“Thank you to all the staff and Pupil Instructors who helped out on this course. We are all now looking forward to the course running in Derbyshire sometime in the near future.”
