During the summer term, six students from Canford School, Dorset headed to Dartmoor National Park to join 2,400 other youngsters taking part in the Ten Tors 2011 Challenge.

Needing to be self-sufficient for a two day expedition on the Moors, the team were carrying everything required for overnight camping and all weather possibilities. Overall the event went very smoothly and the boys performed brilliantly.

The aim is for all six team members to cross the finish line and the boys' preparation was exemplary as they orienteered their way around the rugged and demanding landscape of the National Park, completing their walk in an impressive time - finishing at 11 o'clock on Sunday and second out of twenty teams doing the same route.

Despite being battered and bruised, there were still smiles as they crossed the finish line!
