Welcome! Interested in the Ten Tors Challenge or The Duke of Edinburgh Award or perhaps both? Both of these wonderful youth challenges are available to all students at Teign from Year 9 onwards, all it needs from you is a mixture of determination, teamwork, a little organisation alongside a ‘pinch’ of humour and willingness at times to be taken outside of your comfort zone . The Duke of Edinburgh Award is internationally known and can be started at Bronze level once you reach your fourteenth birthday. It involves four separate units which are all explained if you ‘click’ on the appropriate button at the top of the page. Bronze can be completed in six months if you are really organised and then you can move onto Silver and eventually Gold if you fancy it but ‘click’ that button to find out more! Ten Tors is special to the UK and in particular the South West. It is a expedition over Dartmoor which is organised by the Army and can be completed over 35, 45 or 55 miles depending on your age. The catch is that you only have 24 ‘walking’ hours to do it in, you don’t know your route until the day before and you have to camp out over night! If you think you are up for it then again ‘click’ the button above. Remember - the opportunities are there for you at Teign, don’t miss out!

THERE IS NO COACH FOR 1ST APRIL - PARENT DROP OFF AND PICK UP ONLY SO YOU MAY NEED TO DUST OFF THE OLD TOM TOM!!  The lane leading up to Cantrell Moorgate is rather narrow so I really advise that you organise a ‘car share’ to avoid any unnecessary congestion, that is of course unless you enjoy the real challenge offered in getting that ‘passenger wing’ right up into the hedge if you meet someone in just the ‘wrong’ place!!
