We are delighted to offer students a very exciting opportunity.

In October half term Kingdown will be embarking on an overseas field trip to fascinating Iceland. The trip is open to Year 9, 10, 11 and 12 students.

Land of Fire and Ice

Iceland is known as the ‘Land of Fire and Ice.’  An astonishing country with spectacular glaciers, volcanic mountains, wild gorges, stunning waterfalls, Europe’s largest wet desert, impressive geysers and a raft of other geothermal features all wrapped up in a centuries-old Norse culture. The recent eruption provides an excellent case study for your son or daughter.

The benefits of residential field trips are becoming increasingly recognised as an important part of learning and development.  The trip will help reinforce classroom learning and bring the text book alive, which in turn should translate into students being inspired in both their course work and exams.

Discover the World

The 6 day trip will be organised by Discover the World, our chosen UK tour operator who specialise in student trips and tailor-made holidays to Iceland and beyond.  For your peace of mind they are a leading UK travel company and recognised experts in travel to Iceland.  They are also accredited by the School Travel Forum, an initiative set up to promote best practice and educational travel.
