Gold D of E Expedition
Five groups of Birkdale upper sixth form returned from the Lake District in July with their hard-earned Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Gold Expeditions successfully completed. Over a quarter of Birkdale’s upper sixth form finally left their A-level studies behind them and piled into minibuses bound for the Lake District fells. The twenty-nine pupils all returned in high spirits with everyone successful. Pupils overcame very difficult conditions at times, showing great determination and teamwork. Well done to everyone!
