At the end of the half-term holiday, 28 Upper Sixth pupils and two members of staff spent five days in Iceland.
The trip involved studying the spectacular physical geography of Iceland including volcanoes, geysers, glaciers and waterfalls as well as learning a great deal about the complicated economic and social development of this unique country.
The group also enjoyed a tour of Reykjavik, swimming in open air geothermal pools and a visit to a geothermal power plant. Particular highlights were a walk on the rapidly retreating Sólheimajökull glacier and bathing in the fabulous Blue Lagoon resort. The group were very enthusiastic throughout the trip and clearly enjoyed the whole, varied experience.
