Iceland 2024

Last week, 45 of our A Level Geography and Geology students experienced the beauty and power of ‘mother nature’ on their trip to Iceland.
The tectonic nature of Iceland is directly relevant to both A Level specifications and students visited some of their case studies from the course, such as the volcanic Island of Heimaey, where they walked on the lava from the 1973 eruption, the rift valley of Thingvellir National Park, where the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates are diverging, as well as seeing real lava in a demonstration at the Lava Show in Reykjavik.
Not only was the week educational, but one which has left students with a love of Iceland and memories for life!
