Iceland trip draws nearer for Sixth Formers
Year 13 Geography and Biology students are heading off to Iceland on the 23rd March for what promises to be an amazing few days.
Excitement is running high as the trip departure gets closer!
The focus is to gain first-hand experience of extreme ecosystems and human influences on these ecosystems. These are topics that are part of the A level course in both subjects and the trip is a wonderful opportunity to study extreme environments in reality.
We are expecting temperatures to be seasonally low, with a wind chill that could drop to -15 degrees C. Watch out for some cold weather photos in the next Sixth Form Newsletter!
During the visit we will visit and experience;
• the Blue Lagoon geothermal spa
• a geothermal power station
• the ‘Golden Circle’
• the ‘South Shore’
• the ‘Reykjanes Peninsula’
Evening relaxation at a local geothermal swimming pool
… and glacier walking, weather permitting!
