Field Studies Bolt-on


Working with the Peak District National Park (PDNP) in Derbyshire, we are proud to provide exam board specification geography and ecology fieldwork activities for groups staying at hostels in our two stunning National Parks.

You can be reassured that the DFFPDNP staff running your course are all highly trained and experienced in teaching field studies to all ages and abilities. Using their expert knowledge and experience, sit back whilst bespoke activities are prepared to meet the needs of your exam board – all with the aim of developing fieldwork skills and techniques that will inspire a lifelong love of the subject.

All of the activities provided are based in the real outdoors and are carefully chosen based on the most appropriate landscape features and flora for your requirements. Once booked you’ll be contacted by our partners who will discuss any specific requirements you may have.
