Sixth Form Iceland Trip

On Friday 16th February, 10 Sixth Form students and two teachers embarked on a freezing yet phenomenal four day trip to Iceland.

Highlights of the trip included the Golden Circle tour, which visited the extraordinary sites of the Kerið volcanic crater, the Geysir geothermal area, and Gullfoss waterfall - despite the wind's best efforts, everyone managed to stay on their feet!

Day one finished off exploring the rift valley at the Thingvellir National Park.

Day two was an early start out to the South Shore, where there were more geographic wonders to behold. The first stop was at the towering Skógafoss waterfall, a stop at the iconic Reynisfjara black sand beach, a spot of lunch in the town of Vik then finished up at the final waterfall of the trip Seljalandsfoss.

The final day allowed for a tour of Reykjavik, ending up in the Perlan observatory which offered 360° views over Reykjavík, a fine way to finish the trip.

All students conducted themselves impeccably and were a credit to the school – a fabulous trip had by all.
