Whether your students are working towards AS or A2, our field courses can provide the vital requirements to fulfil their fieldwork needs.  With many inspiring locations, providing excellent opportunities for independent investigation the North Devon coast is the ideal study environment.

Our aim is simple; our field studies programmes are designed to allow students to learn and practice fieldwork techniques and to enhance their subject knowledge through first hand experiences linked to established case studies.  Whether your class study AQAOCREDEXCEL, WJEC, or the International Baccalaureate just to name a few, we have a wide range of topics available that can be designed and adapted around your syllabus requirements.

Our tutors can deliver all aspects of the course and support students through their enquiries as they develop their own hypotheses and strategies for enquiry.

AS level

Who's it for?
New courses written to satisfy the requirements for the new specification, these programmes are for students undertaking a Geography AS Level.  Students are required to experience 2 days of quality fieldwork at AS Level, both of which can be accomplished during a visit to Skern Lodge.  Key Geography concepts can be introduced for the first time whilst out in the field, or students can apply classroom knowledge to see how it measures up to ‘real life’. Students will be introduced to all stages of an investigation, including setting a testable hypothesis and deciding on a sampling strategy, use of scientific equipment and apparatus when out in the field, primary data collection and presentation, and the process of articulating a robust conclusion and evaluation.
