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.

The last expedition was to Ladakh in the Indian Himalaya. Here they trekked in and around the mountains of the Himalaya and climbed Stok Kangri 6100m. They also worked on the refurbishment of a school as part of a project with the local community. Following all the hard work the students then visited one of the seven man made wonders of the world, the Taj Mahal in Agra.

This expedition was 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 ensures that Denstonians enjoy the best school expedition experience available.
