Geography & Art Trip leaves for Iceland and USA


On Friday 23 October Mr Parker and Mr Armitage together with 40 pupils and staff will leave on the school's now biennial trip to Reykavik and New York.


This year the seven day trip is slightly different, as for the first time the Geography and Art Departments have combined to offer an even more varied pupil experience.

Highlights of what will no doubt be a simply wonderful trip are almost too numerous to mention.  However, the three days in Iceland will include the chance for pupils to visit a geothermal power station, walk on a glacier and see a volcanic crater. Whilst in New York pupils will visit the Statue of Liberty, Metropolitan Museum of Art and 911 Memorial Museum - and perhaps have some rather good food as well!

Mr Parker, Head of Geography, commented: "I have no doubt our upcoming trip will be fantastic - every minute of the trip will be used to afford our pupils the widest possible range of experiences. I am particularly grateful to our Head of Art, Mr Armitage for working so very hard to make sure the trip has the best possible balance of geography and art excursions".
