P1090190 250pxThis term Geographers have been out and about studying a range of topics in the field.
Firstly Year 10 students travelled to the tertiary coast between Reculver & Herne Bay - to investigate the various coastal management techniques for their GCSE coursework. For their IB Internal Assessment the Year 12 Geographers undertook a residential trip to Surrey – in order to investigate the fluvial dynamics of the River Tillingbourne.
Finally, 22 students from Year 11 took part in a residential trip to the country of Iceland.  They were thoroughly immersed in the islands unique physical geography – a land of tectonic and glacial wonders. During the 6 day trip students;
  • wiggled through lava tubes
  • walked down a mid-Atlantic ridge fissure
  • trekked around & behind a range of majestic waterfalls
  • hiked upon a glacier armed with crampons and axes
  • marvelled at columnar basalt formations & black sand beaches
  • travelled to the top of a glacier in an ex-army rocket launcher.
  • observed puffins loaded with fish, returning from the sea  to their nests high in the cliffs
  • enjoyed a boat trip around the icebergs of a glacial lagoon
  • witnessed humpback whales breaching and fluking
  • relaxed in the geo-thermal waters of the Blue Lagoon
It was an awe-inspiring trip which further enhanced the students’ love of Geography and many are keen to visit this fantastic country again.
