Bravo! The Mount Receives Prestigious Arctic Club Funding Award (To Climb A Mount)!


The Mount is delighted to have been selected as this year’s beneficiary of both The Arctic Club Award expedition funding and The Gino Watkins Memorial Fund.

Recent Old Scholar, Rosie Morrison, who is taking a Gap Year before university, was also selected for Mountain Leadership Training funding, in recognition of her commitment to growing her expeditionary skills, after a successful trip to Iceland with The Mount.

Nigel Bidgood, Expert Head of our Borealis Society, said, “This means such a great deal that these prestigious organisations – The Arctic Club, The Scott Polar Research Institute based in Cambridge University and The Royal Geographical Society have all recognised what The Mount is trying to achieve with this expedition to East Greenland, following our successful trip to Iceland.”

Nigel is in school this week training the next group of senior girls who will set off to East Greenland in July.

Tonight, he leads a fascinating information evening for pupils and their families, as the lengthy preparations continue.

The Arctic Club seeks to promote and support interesting, innovative and adventurous Arctic expeditions, particularly for young people, with awards made annually. Each year, one or more expeditions is given an Arctic Club Award with successful applicants announced in March.

The Mount – as this year’s selected group – will be invited as special guests to talk at the next Arctic Club Dinner which The Mount has offered to proudly host.
