Aylmerton Field Studies Cemtre, Aylmerton, near Cromer

Ideal for KS2

We take up to 75 Y5 each year for a weekend. Flexible to our needs. Low staff turnover. Good value.


FSC Rydd y Craeau,

Well run and flexible field centre. Suitable for KS3. My trip is quite cross curricular but seems to offer more harcore Geography too through to 6th form. Max capacity c 100

Good leaders; super food

Barcelona Field Studies Centre - http://geographyfieldwork.com/

Derek and the team never fail to disappoint. A very good level of service down on the Med and a huge range of studies that can be undertaken.

Using them for the third time this year.

Hi, I used to work at a outdoor education centre, which did geography and biology fieldwork as well as all the outdoor activities as well.

The company is called Kingswood Learning and leisure.
They have several centres but only 3 that do the fieldwork and they are
Colomendy (north wales)
Overstrand (Norfolk)
Isle of wight

Hope this helps

FSC Slapton Sands was excellent last week! Good accommodation, food and activities for kids. Program well designed to suit our needs. KIds loved it! worth the 51/2 hr drive!

An unusual one, but we've just come back from Northern Ireland and the Bushmills Education Centre on the North Coast (very close to Giants Causeway). We used it for EdExcel A-Level Geography, unequal spaces and crowded coasts.
Its part of the local authority rather than FSC, and we did the teaching ourselves, but a wonderful location, wonderful staff and facilities there!
