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 Castle Head centre lies in its own extensive grounds between the southern fells of the Lake District and the shores of Morecambe Bay. The centre has 120 beds and a number of large indoor spaces including 6 workrooms, student common rooms, a separate staff lounge and a sports hall. Within the 20 hectares of grounds there are a wide variety of habitats, purpose built activity sites and a fully equipped observatory.
As a Field Studies and Outdoor Education and Activity Centre we offer a wide range of courses, including Cross Curricular and Eco-Adventure at KS2, KS3, GCSE and A level, all of which can be tailored to meet your needs. A level and GCSE science courses are also available at the Life Science Centre, an industrial standard laboratory at Castle Head.
