An international school trip has won second prize in a national competition.

A group of Stamford Endowed School pupils spent 31 days on an expedition in Patagonia earlier this year.

The trip saw them take part in a week long Duke of Edinburgh snow-shoeing expedition, sea-kayaking amongst the fjords and a community camp for 200 local children.

The trip was awarded the runners up prize in the Educational Journey of the Year Award 2012, run by educational travel firm Stretching Horizons.

A spokesman praised the dedication of biology teacher and trip organiser Leigh Ware.
