Duke of Edinburgh Expedition

Year 10 students working on the Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award took part in their final expedition on June 18-19. Over the course of 2 days, we all had to walk at least 24km around West Ilsley, watched by a trained assessor, who could pass or fail us! We camped overnight on Saturday, cooking all our own food before setting out very early again on the Sunday. The Duke of Edinburgh Award has been an amazing experience, as we have all learnt valuable skills in map reading, using a compass and how to put up a tent, although we were all very jealous of Mr Scobie in his hammock!

Visitors to St Gabriel's quickly recognise that this is no ordinary school. Parents are always impressed by the sense of purpose and enthusiasm of the talented, committed staff and the confidence of the extremely happy pupils. We offer girls the opportunity for a seamless journey from Nursery through to Sixth Form, with our boys leaving us at the age of 11 for their senior schools.
