A Level students

Bring classroom learning to life and prepare for university by taking part in fieldwork opportunties.

Fieldwork summer school

Each summer, we hold a fully funded residential fieldwork summer school for geography students at the end of their first year of AS studies (or equivalent).  The summer school is for students who, through challenging circumstances or lack of opportunity, have not been able to benefit from such experiences before.

What will I be doing?

During the summer school you will get to:

  • Improve your geographical skills, knowledge and understanding, see real-life case studies and try different fieldwork techniques
  • Prepare for studying geography at university
  • Build your confidence, independence, initiative, teamworking and leadership skills

Find out what students did on previous summer schools.


The next Summer School will take place at the Cranedale Centre in North Yorkshire from 18-22 August 2014 for students currently in Year 12. Download the guidance notes and application forms.
