STUDENTS from Stafford Grammar School have carried supplies on a gruelling four day trek in North Africa to earn themselves a top award.

Fourteen sixth formers successfully navigated their way across the difficult Moroccan terrain of the Atlas Mountains to complete their Duke of Edinburgh’s Award gold expedition.

Undeterred by their exhausting hike, seven of the students then opted to expand their adventure by scaling Mount Toubkal, North Africa’s highest peak, with a local mountain guide.

While their classmates climbed to the summit 4167 metres above sea level, the remaining pupils worked on a conservation project on the footpaths around Imlil.
