Excellent teaching and support for the NEA - Facilities are good but need updating - Refurbishment is happening this year, Otherwise 5 stars. (June 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 13784 )




Visited many times so know what to expect and how to get the most from our time. Excellent and experienced tutor. (June 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 13283 )




Outstanding tutor that I have worked with many times. (June 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 13281 )




Good, but costly. Only real benefits (instead of leading it ourselves); the equipment, the kit (waterproof clothing/wellies and access to Crossways Farm (governed by Juniper Hall). May consider leading it ourselves next year (as we do with our Guildford Trip) if we can get the equipment. (June 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 13280 )

The students could have been pushed harder. There could have been a choice of meals for the evening. The facilities felt cramped for catering for the group size. (January 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 8944 )

Excellent course. Students gained a range of fieldwork experience as well as learning about the process of enquiry. Field centre is looking a little tired (but is getting a re-fit later this year). (February 2018 - Secondary - Post No: 996 )
