University Support Programme

Once the AS exams have finished, students are usually ready to relax after a year of hard work; however there is still a little more for them to do before they can fully enjoy the summer break.

Duke of Edinburgh Silver Award Expedition

The MPW Silver assessment expedition was a fun and adventurous journey following the South Downs Link from Guildford to Brighton. For the purpose of the assessment, our team of five cyclists had to demonstrate self-sufficiency by riding at least five hours a day for three days, applying our camp craft training to put up tents and cook food and also by carrying all own gear. Using our orienteering skills and maps, we also had to find our own way through many different villages and unsigned roads. Luckily, the only problems we had were riding in wet weather on the last day and a tyre puncture on our second day.
