|Denstone College has a long history of offering students in the Sixth Form the opportunity of a one month overseas expedition every two years. Traditionally this has been offered in partnership with World Challenge, and recent destinations include Peru, Madagascar with Ecuador, and the Galapagos Islands in 2012.
In 2014 the students will be traveling to Ladakh in the Indian Himalaya. Here they will be trekking in and around the mountains of the Himalaya and attempting to climb Stok Kangri 6100m. They will also be working on the refurbishment of a school as part of a project with the local community. Following all the hard work the students will visit one of the seven man made wonders of the world, the Taj Mahal in Agra.
This expedition will be supported by True Adventure. Founded by Mike Trueman and Dr Raj Joshi both of whom are experienced mountaineers who have each reached the summit of Mount Everest, True Adventure is a specialist in overseas expeditions. The College believes that this partnership will ensure that Denstonians enjoy the best school expedition experience available.
