Iceland

On 8th July 33 pupils and three lucky members of staff toured the amazing geographical landscape of Iceland. Over a busy four days, the group walked back and forth between two continents clocking up over 40 km in four days. Some of the highlights included climbing a Volcano (Stora Eldborg), standing behind a waterfall (Seljalandsfoss) and next to exploding geysers.

Pupils swam in the Secret Lagoon hot springs, saw the crashing Atlantic waves on the atmospheric Vik volcanic beach and watched wonderful puffins on the cliffs. The group visited a geothermal power station and discussed climate change at the retreating Sólheimajökull Glacier. As one parent kindly commented: “Our daughter made lots of memories that she will remember for a very long time.”
