Here at the Gilbert White Field Studies Centre we specialise in learning outside the classroom, offering a wide range of courses to students, teachers, and adult learners on landscape, ecology, natural history, life in the 18th century and the history of the Antarctic and Africa.
We have spent some time looking at our courses and how they link to the new curriculum. And they do! With a few adaptions here and there, we can offer you a wide range of practical, hands-on experiences, which fully meet the requirements of the 2014 curriculum.
