Sixth formers from Holy Family and Greenhead schools, in Keighley, will be swapping the heat of a British summer for the geothermal heat of Iceland.

Pupils from the associated sixth form will be joined by colleagues from Childwall Comprehensive, Liverpool, for a trip to the volcanic island in July.

Holy Family geography teacher Cath Owens, who will take the trip, said last year's inaugural visit was incredible.

The trip combines aspects of physical and human geography. The teenagers will visit many of Iceland's unique features, including geysers, volcanoes and geothermal hotspots.

They will also see the small island of Heimaey, Iceland's biggest fishing port, which was evacuated in 1973 because of a volcanic eruption.

And the pupils will learn about how the people have harnessed the power of the land and its effects on the country's tourism industry.

Miss Owens said: "Last year's trip was a one-off experience for them but some of them are now lucky enough to be going again."
