Since 2008 The 3 Peaks & 4 Peaks Challenge Teams have raised close to £70,000 for charities nominated by the Teams themselves.
3 Peaks Challenge
Having completed all fundraising and training by the start of their exams the team complete the National 3 Peaks Challenge in the first week of July which involves climbing the three highest peaks of Scotland, England and Wales.
The three peaks are:
- Ben Nevis, in Scotland (1345m)

- Snowdon, in Wales (1085m)
4 Peaks Challenge
Every second year the 3 Peaks Challenge Team have the opportunity to climb the 4062m peak of The Gran Paradiso, Italy’s tallest mountain. This outstanding achievement is the reward for all the time, effort and hard work the pupils put in over the last 18 months.
