Participants can enrol at any time from the 1st June before they go into Yr9.
You are expected to discuss and agree your sectional choices. You can pop in for help most term time Tuesdays at any stage in your Award.
Required attendance in the Autumn term is about once a month for specific training – see below and our full calendar page
Local day hikes would normally have started in the New Year. The revised programme is detailed below.
Regular Tues evening attendance in 2021 is from Tues 20 April in the Dance Studio (MPH) from 3.30 until 5.15/30pm This time is spent planning and completing preparation for the expedition assessment. It is mandatory because everyone has to be involved. Also, the teams and the people in them have to be safe and ready enough to execute a self-sufficient, unaccompanied, assessed expedition that they’ve planned themselves. On assessment, teams are remotely supervised and meet leaders at agreed checkpoints.
We anticipate the 2020/21 Bronze Expedition to be done and dusted by the end of June 2021 as below.
We keep most Bronze events to local areas and, to keep transport costs down, ask that parents help by dropping off and picking up from start and finish points. If there is ever a problem doing that then please speak to a leader.
The Award is very flexible in the way that it can be approached: not all sections need to be started at the same time and two levels can be worked on at once, but ask for the fine print!
