The Gold Award is undertaken by approximately 180 students in the sixth form. Students begin their Gold Award in Year 12 and complete it with their Qualifying expedition after their exams in the summer of Year 13.
The Gold Expedition section is led by Mr Hill (HL). His team consists of approximately 15 experienced and well qualified supervisors who take responsibility for supporting groups of students during the Monday night training and route planning sessions, and during the expeditions themselves.
The Gold team is supported by Mr Dixon (Director of DofE) and Mrs Brazil (Assistant Director of DofE).
