School Trips @ Field Studies Council

Home / Northern Ireland / Down

Covid-19

Due to the government guidance following social distancing we are offering new outreach courses held in the School's grounds to ensure you can still have school trips delivered in a covid-secure way.

FSC offers fieldwork and outdoor learning for groups of all ages at centres across the UK. Trips use our stunning locations to teach curriculum focused work and inspire everyone about the environment.

We have day courses to immerse your primary school children in the natural world, taking in its sights, sounds and smells. Enjoy a day at FSC Ireland exploring geography or science in the outdoors.

For secondary and A level groups we offer curriculum based geography, biology and environmental science day courses. We can tailor them to your own requirements to ensure you get the most from your visit and trips utilise our local environment to fully engage students.

Bring your subject to life in the outdoor classroom!
