Timberley Academy

Althougth showery rain, the Year 4 children from Timberley Academy (Birmingham) have had a great time at Willesley Scout Camp, where we’ve been delivering some outdoor activities to give them an adventure they’ll remember as part of their residential 😊


Well done to the DofE Leaders that passed their L3 Qualification in Lowland Expedition Leadership assessment during the weekend. The assessors were impressed with your navigation, campcraft, & leadership skills. All key to run safe DofE expeditions 👍


Congratulations to all students from Dormers Wells High School; Kings Norton Boys’ School; & Bournville School; who have successfully completed their Bronze or Silver DofE practice expeditions during the weekend 😊


Having completed our 5-day Level 3 Qualification in Lowland Expedition Leadership training course in Shropshire this week, we’re now in the Cotswolds for our LEL3 assessment weekend with DofE Leaders from Warwickshire schools. Good luck! 😊

Open Bronze Expedition Week

Some great feedback from a parent of a participant following our ‘Open Bronze Expedition Week’ held in the Long Mynd area of Shropshire last week 👍

Thanks very much for the mail – and also a very big thank you for running the group so successfully!! Stella got a huge amount of her experience and, it’s a long story – so too much for here, but that is worth its weight in gold right now!!
I will pass on the certificate and comments to Stella and we will come back to you shortly with some additional positive feedback.
Thanks again – much appreciated!

It’s a great privilege being able to support and make a positive contribution to the lives of young people 🙂
