Wilmington Grammar School for Girls is one of Kent’s leading schools.
Our motto is the Pursuit of Excellence and we have a long record of academic success.
Welcome back to the start of the summer term. This final full term will be the last for our Year 13 students and for a few Year 11 students who are moving on to pastures new. Revision for those all important examinations is already in full flow and I have been impressed to see some excellent revision schedules in use and strong attendance at the many support sessions which have been arranged. A big thank you as always to our dedicated team, of staff.
This week’s blog has a special tribute to Mr Simmonds and his team of Icelandic explorers. What a fantastic trip for our 48 participating students who have enjoyed an experience of a lifetime during the Easter break.
Here are some student reflections:
I thoroughly enjoyed swimming in the Blue Lagoon because it was such an amazing natural phenomena. It was breathtaking. I was also mind-blown when we got to stand underneath the Seljalandsfoss waterfall and walking inside the Solheimajokull glacier. Overall, my favourite part was the lava tube caving on the last day. Iceland was an experience I will never forget.
The Blue Lagoon was the best part of the Iceland trip in my opinion because it was an incredible experience to sit and swim in 35 degree C silica-rich water despite the contrasting air temperature of 1 degree C. I loved it!
Although it was cold, Iceland was an amazing trip. The Northern Lights were beautiful and very exciting. Lava tube caving was quite scary at first but great fun! I loved the trip!
The Iceland video can be viewed using this link and gives a real taste of the #InspiredByIceland experience! https://vimeo.com/124565356
We wish good luck to all our Duke of Edinburgh silver award students, who embark on their expedition this weekend. Let’s hope the weather holds out for you all!
