Ten Tors Challenge 2019

Another fantastic achievement from our Coombe Dean Ten Tors teams this year.

We counted them all out and we counted them back in again. Both the 35 and 45 mile teams worked together to ensure that they would all complete the challenge on Sunday.

The students have worked hard since November, training in mostly rainy and windy weather. This weekend was their chance to show what they could do with the weather now sunny and warm.

This really is a challenge that tests young people’s grit and determination, and our youngsters certainly rose to the challenge. They impressed us with their team spirit, the way they have looked after each other and for being such great company.

During the training, the students have been supported by a great team of adults who have voluntarily given up their time to help them to be ready for the challenge. I would like to thank all of them, because without their contribution, we would not be able to even begin the training.

Mr Woodland was rewarded for 20 years of commitment to the Ten Tors challenge this year, so big congratulations to him – this is quite an achievement.

I would also like to thank the parents for their support, and for getting up very early on Saturday mornings to drop their children off in time to be driven up to Dartmoor.

This year’s teams have been a credit to themselves, and to Coombe Dean School – I hope they have enjoyed their Ten Tors experience.
