TriglavStudents in current Years 11 and 12 are being offered the opportunity to take part in a mountaineering/high level trekking expedition to the Julian Alps in Slovenia. The 10-day expedition will take place during the summer of 2018. Students will be based on the shores of Lake Bohinj, where they will spend two days acclimatising before beginning a four-day, hut-to-hut route, taking in Triglav (2864m), Slovenia’s highest mountain. Included in the price is a pre-expedition training weekend in the Lake District, where students will meet their guides, experience the type of technical terrain that will be encountered on the trip and they will also be introduced to the use of Via Ferrata equipment. The trip will be delivered by Hebridean Pursuits, a company based in Scotland with over 25 years’ experience of guiding young people in Scotland and throughout Europe’s Alpine regions. This company is currently used by the school to deliver the Scottish Winter Mountaineering course that we offer students in Sixth Form during February Half Term.

If you would like to find out more information about this trip, please attend the parent information evening on Tuesday 11th October in Trinity Hall at 7pm. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please feel free to get in touch.

Best wishes,
Mr Bailey

Head of Outdoor Education
