Over the Easter holiday, 40 Year 10-13 students embarked on a trip of a lifetime to the icy nation of Iceland. Iceland is a fantastic place to visit for all things geography. This was especially good for our students who were taking GCSE/A Level geography as most of our content can be covered in Iceland. Our students experienced 4 full days of geography and every kind of weather imaginable!! Our first stop was to the Blue Lagoon (little did the students know that this would be their only time to relax!). We then went on to see some amazing physical geography such as the Gullfoss Waterfall, the flood plain from the volcanic glacial burst in 2010, the place where the Eurasian and North American plates meet and the exploding Geysers!
We also held a photo competition for the best Iceland photos from the trip. Our winners were: Matt Wall (Y13), Olivia Mitchell (Y13) and Catherine Lloyd (Y10) – the winning photos are below.
It was an amazing trip that went far too quickly – well, time does fly when you're having fun!
