What does the Senior Section do?

  Senior Section are aged from fourteen to twenty-five.

At Senior Section we talk and talk, but we talk about stuff that matters and actually do something about it.  It is exciting with many challenges and opportunities. The Senior Section is divided into two groups, Young Leaders aged 14-18 and Rangers aged 14-25 they follow the Look Wider programme it motivates and encourages the girls to try out new things, such as running a marathon, camping in the wilds or volunteering overseas.  The programme is very flexible and the girls can choose themselves what they want to do and how far they wish to go.  They can choose to take a wide range of awards and qualifications such as Leadership qualification or the internationally recognised Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme.  There is also the successful peer education scheme and many other international opportunities.
