Burnt Mill students make groundbreaking trip to Iceland

A ONCE-in-a-lifetime trip saw teenagers experience the Blue Lagoon and a walk over a volcano.

Year 10 and 11 students from Burnt Mill Academy were given the opportunity to take the experiential trip as part of their geography and science GCSE courses.

The 23 students not only visited the tourist hotspots, including climbing the fourth biggest glacier in Europe and visiting several waterfalls exploring the natural physical geography Iceland has to offer, but learnt about different cultures.

Kayleigh Trainor, head of humanities, said: “The trip really brought learning to life, using Iceland as a case study for geography and looking at the geothermal link to science.

“This is the first time we have taken students to Iceland and it was a really good experience for them. It was a real eye-opener to what is out there and gave them a taste for travel and a flavour for exploring more cultures.”
