On Thursday 13th July current Year 12, Post-16 students from Marlwood School departed for a month expedition to Peru.
The trip is an opportunity to experience the culture and sights of Peru, undertake volunteering in the Scared Valley, trek in the Amazon rainforest and visit the lost city of Machu Picchu.
The students will develop their own personal skills and each day students will take it in turns to look after the needs for the whole group.
For many their exciting journey started over a year ago raising the funds to finance the trip through, fundraising show, catering at events, car washings and taking part time jobs whilst balancing studying. 

The expedition is an opportunity for the students to discover and experience a different culture.  At Marlwood development isn’t just about learning but developing and preparing students for the wider world.
