Students at Sturminster Newton High School completed the gruelling Ten Tors challenge in great time.
Three teams were entered – two 35-mile teams and one 45-mile team.
The challenge involves teams of six young people being totally self-sufficient, navigating and hiking to ten specified checkpoints on Dartmoor and camping overnight.
The teams train during weekends throughout the year, sometimes camping out overnight in extreme weather.
Hundreds of schools from all over the country compete and this year was the event’s 60th anniversary.
