C21 Silver Cycling Kit List

Here is the kit list for the Silver DofE Cycling expedition. Please check it fully. It is very similar the kit for bronze but there are some notable changes due to the mode of transport:

  • Students will need only a small day-sized backpack as they will be carrying most of their gear in pannier bags.
  • Hiking boots are not necessary.
  • There are some items that the whole group needs that need to be organised by individuals in the group. This is detailed in the full kit list.

Thank you, we’re really looking forward to being the first DofE cycling group at XP!

Just a quick reminder for parents of the key dates for C22 students in Crew Nightingale and Bronte. Students will have their final kit check in Crew time on Thursday 14th June and will be bag packing on Thursday 21st June; as a result, students will have a later finish at school of around 5pm. Finally, the Friday the 22nd and 23rd June students will be completing their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh walk. Students need to arrive at school on Friday the 22nd at 7.15am. We would ask that parents please remind students of the need to take care while out on expedition and that mobile phones are not allowed, unless the group have decided that a specific phone is to be used as the emergency contact or it is part of their aim to use them at which point we will remove the SIM card which will be kept safe for the weekend.

Please watch the website during the Saturday afternoon, the expected time back at school is between 5 and 6pm, but this may change due to traffic or any vital de-gunging that may need to take place before students leave.

C22 D of E Bag Pack

Reminder!

Bronte and Nightingale leave on their expedition this Friday (27th April). For this, we need to ensure that bags are packed and fitted for safety. Students from these crews are therefore required to stay until 5pm Thursday 26th April. 

Ennis Hill and Emily Davison will have their bag pack on Thursday 3rd May until 5pm, ready for their expedition which begins on 4th May. These two crews still have their kit check Thursday 26th April during crew.

Bag pack requires students to have everything they will take on expedition, apart from their packed lunch for the Friday.

Students are required to be in school at 7 am on the morning of the start of their expedition.

 

Thank you
