In response to the global coronavirus outbreak, St Peter’s School, York has implemented a strict visitor policy to safeguard the health and wellbeing of the whole school community. Following instructions from the government, the school site will be closed to pupils (apart from children of key workers) from the end of the day on Friday 20 March with no indication given of when that situation will change. We ask that all non-essential visitors also stay away from the school at this time. If your visit is essential, please read our visitor policy before you visit the school.

Bronze Award - 2015 info

This page contains useful information for the 2015 Bronze Award.  

Practice expeditions will take place on 28-29 May for Group 1, and 30-31 May for Group 2.

Qualifying expeditions will take place on 21-22 June for Group 1, and 23-24 June for Group 2.

Over 80 pupils in the Fourth Form are taking part in this year’s Bronze Award.  The pupils have been informed which group they’re in - please note that if they’re in Group I for the Practice, it may not follow that they will be in Group I for the Qualifying, though they will be in the same teams.

In order to prepare for the Practice expeditions we have arranged for Adventure Training to run two school based intensive afternoon/evening sessions.  These will take place on 5 May and 15 May. Both sessions run from 4.00pm to 7.00pm. Pupils will be given refreshments during the session and boarders will have tea at 7.00pm, before going into prep.

At the training sessions pupils will take an active role in planning their expeditions. 

Whilst Adventure Training will run the expeditions, St Peter’s staff will accompany the expeditions.

Kit lists can be found below.  It is worth emphasising that the School provides tents, rucksacks, stoves and sleeping bags. Kit will checked by the D of E staff prior to departure.
