Field Studies Council - Malham Tarn


Leading Provider of Geography and Science (Biology) Fieldwork

Description

FSC is a charity that aims to bring environmental understanding to all. We believe the more we know about and take inspiration from the world around us the more we can appreciate its needs and protect its diversity and beauty for future generations.

One of the many ways we do this is by providing well-designed, expertly delivered educational experiences for school groups, set in some of the UK's most stunning locations. Each year over 3,000 school groups, from key stage 1 to university level, visit our centres for geography or science (biology) fieldwork and cross-curricular environmental activity courses.

FSC's Malham Tarn centre is set in the Yorkshire Dales National Park and occupies a large Georgian country house, leased from the National Trust. It is the focus of an internationally important National Nature Reserve and the Tarn itself is one of only eight upland alkaline lakes in Europe.

Excellent understanding of examination requirements (April 2020 - Secondary - Post No: 20608 )




The setting is brilliant with amazing views of the tarn. Everything you need to cover the ecology part of the A-level spec is literally on their doorstep. We had two tutors while we were there and both were extremely knowledgable and good at getting the pupils to understand difficult concepts including statistics.

Very friendly staff, one excellent tutor and the other 3 still developing their skills. There were some issue with a power cut and lack of water afterwards, but this was a problem from outside the centre and was solved relatively quickly. (July 2018 - Secondary - Post No: 5771 )

The layout of the staff rooms in relation to the children's rooms meant that some children's room were away from teachers overnight. Children could lock rooms from the inside and in an emergency this could delay staff getting into the rooms. (April 2018 - Primary - Post No: 2596 )




Excellent experience, the children were fully engaged in all activities and dietary requirements met. (April 2018 - Primary - Post No: 2499 )
