The South Wolverhamtpon & Bilston Academy

During March, 27 students had the chance to visit the capital city Reykjavik- the central hub of Iceland, as well as Iceland's South Shore giving us the opportunity to visit some amazing waterfalls. Please enjoy the extended version of our tour video below:

Students particularly enjoyed being able to fill their water bottles and drink from the crystal clear, ice cold waters from Iceland's glaciers.
We also toured Iceland's 'Golden Circle' which included a visit to a glacier, an extinct volcanic crater, geysers in the hot springs, and the spectacular Gulfoss waterfall. We also got chance to skate on a frozen lake which was lots of fun! 



Our final day included a visit to The Blue Lagoon- a geothermally heated pool which allowed us the chance to put volcanic mud face masks on our face and enjoy an ice cold drink in the beautifully warm waters.

Both staff and students alike had a fantastic time and Mr Ellement said that the students were a credit to the Academy.
