Field Studies Council - South West

School Trips @ Field Studies Council

Home / Residentials South West / Devon

In the south west of England FSC has three great locations to choose from. Nettlecombe Court is on the edge of Exmoor National Park in a secluded valley. It is also a short distance from the coast and easily reached from the M5. In Slapton, South Devon Slapton Ley field centre is just 10 minutes walk from both the beach and Slapton National Nature Reserve. Start Bay is a self contained centre just up the road which also offers self catering facilities.

Wherever you choose to visit FSC in the South West students can carry out fieldwork in exciting, real locations which are inspiring yet easily reached from our centres.

Primary field trips with FSC enable you to pick and choose from a range of exciting adventure or curriculum sessions to build your own trip.

For secondary and A level groups we offer geography, science and adventure/teambuilding courses. Courses bring to life topics studied in the classroom and we can tailor them to your requirements.
