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!

Rucksack WeightFolks, a number of you are carrying more than the recommended 30lbs or one third of your body weight before you add water. Please look carefully at any luxuries you may be carrying and if the team is keeping the inner and outer of the tent together then whoever is carrying should consider sharing out some of their other kit.
