The annual field trip to Iceland was another unforgettable experience for our Year 10 geographers. The students have developed a better understanding of the GCSE specification, while creating long-lasting memories. Folks back home were able to keep up with their adventures by following our school social media posts..
TUESDAY - Despite the elements, our students enjoyed exploring Iceland’s capital city Reykjavík (Icelandic for ‘Smokey Bay’) and its quakeproof buildings.
WEDNESDAY - Waterfalls, glaciers and sea stacks! Our Year 10 students discussed the issues regarding 110 metres of glacial retreat since last year's visit.

THURSDAY - Geothermal activity was the theme of the day. Having visited the world’s largest geothermal power station and witnessed the Great Geysir (geyser), our students gained a crucial understanding of how we can harness a powerful natural resource.
FRIDAY - It was the final day in Iceland for our Year 10 students. First stop: a rather smelly fish drying station! For more picturesque views our budding geographers visited Lake Kleifarvatn and the rugged seas of the Reykjanes Peninsula. Oh, and another chance celebrity meeting... Toff (‘queen of the jungle’).
