Secondary Field Studies - History, Geography & Science
We are ideally located in the Castleshaw Valley for a wide range of field study topics.
The outdoor experience and local knowledge of our staff can be used to compliment the subject specific objectives of school staff to maximise the value of the field trip experience.
The valley boasts an archaeological timeline spanning the Victorian era, the industrial Revolution, the middle ages and the Romans to the Bronze age.
From a geographical perspective, the presence of glaciated valleys, moorland habitat, the source of a major river and examples of settlements shaped by the local landscape give plenty of scope for study.
