Ten Tors Mendip Training

Ten Tors training has begun in earnest in readiness for the event in May. Over the past few weeks the students involved have had training in a variety of topics from safety in the hills and emergency procedures to map reading and how to pitch a tent. On Sunday 24th February six groups of walkers completed a 15 mile route across the Mendips and into Cheddar with full rucksacks to prepare themselves for the first weekend training on Dartmoor in March. They were led by Year 13 students, well supported by many members of staff. Coping with the freezing wind all the groups coped well with conditions and are now reflecting on whether they could do it all again after a night camping!
