On a Friday evening in mid-August, seventy-three Lower 6th and Upper 5th pupils met at Settle car park, Yorkshire, to embark on their Gold Practice and Silver Assessed Duke of Edinburgh's Award expeditions. The Upper 5th group went on towards Moorgarth Farm, from where they would start their expedition the following morning, while the Lower 6th students went on to Knights Stainforth campsites, ahead of a day of training.
