Junior Ten Tors

Each year a group of 8 Year 6 pupils is chosen to take part in the annual Junior Ten Tors Challenge. Four Boys and four Girls are trained in orienteering, first aid and camping. Their task is to complete a gruelling 25km trek across the wilderness of Dartmoor (accompanied by two adults). The expedition takes place over two days with a wild camp in between. It is an excellent team building exercise, one that the children participating in never forget.
