2019 World Challenge

Thank you to every student who applied for the 2019 World Challenge expedition. We received over 100 applications in total, all of which were extremely well written and deserving of a place. Reading through every application highlighted how many talented, hard working, and motivated students we have in our school. Deciding on the final 38 was a very difficult process.

The successful students have now received an email via their school email address. If you have not received an email then unfortunately you have not been successful with your application.

All students who provided an email address when signing in at the information evening will receive more information about independent expeditions that are available.
