A group of students travelled from Ipswich to Iceland as part of a four-day study trip designed to bring the subject of geography to life.
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.”
