Achieving your Award is an adventure from beginning to end and this section can give you some of your most memorable experiences!
To ensure that we offer the best possible experience of the Expedition Section of the Award Scheme we have chosen to partner with Ocean Rock Adventure, who specialise in outdoor educational experiences for young people. We are very excited about the opportunities that this partnership offers our students undertaking the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme.
Ocean Rock were founded in 2011 by two secondary school teachers, Peter and Rachel. With a love of the outdoors, their mission is to provide quality adventures for all in amazing locations. They are based in Bristol and work throughout the UK & abroad. Ocean Rock Adventure are experienced, qualified and licensed to deliver a wide range of activities in the outdoors. The company is qualified with MIA, WGL and ML Instructors and are BCU coaches. They will provide us with the skills, organisation and support to achieve our Mandeville School Duke of Edinburgh’s Award in a safe, fun and adventurous way.
