Learners from One sixth form touched down in the country’s capital city of Reykjavik before experiencing everything from geology to geyser parks via glaciers, volcanoes and waterfalls.

Last year A-level students travelled to the VW Autostadt in Wolfsburg, Germany – and in 2019, a trip to the Bay of Naples is being planned.

Geography teacher Abigail Lord said she feels the value of seeing the world cannot be underestimated, and added: “It’s good for young people to experience new things.

“Lots of our students hadn’t flown before and I think they enjoy travelling with their peers.”

While student Laura Flockhart, who enjoyed Iceland’s thermal springs and vast landscapes, said: “It’s great to visually see things that you hear about in the classroom.”
