Gold award leadership programme

The pupils who attend the Gold award leadership programme took part in an expedition to complete their Gold award. The school work with MPCT (military prep college for training) who run a programme with our year 8 pupils called the leadership awards programme. Pupils work their way from Bronze award through to Platinum by working through a variety of challenges and tasks devised by Nikki Yapp, our MPCT instructor. As a part of the completion of Gold award, the year 8 students took part in an expedition which ran over two days. Pupils went to Merthyr Mawr and completed shelter building tasks, observations tasks and a rationing and cooking challenge. The second stage of the expedition took place in Brecon, where pupils worked as a team to climb Pen-Y-Fan. The pupils took on the challenges set and successfully completed their Gold award with the MPCT instructors. As a school we are very proud of the pupils’ achievements and would like to congratulate them all.
