Bringing the curriculum to life can be a challenge, but not here. Learning outside the classroom at Ford Castle is fun, friendly and fantastic.
The Castle itself plus our ready proximity to many sites such as the Roman Wall, Holy Island, Cragside House, the Cheviot Hills, and the River Till mean we are ideally placed to effectively target many subjects.
National Curriculum requirements in History, Science, Geography and Citizenship for Key Stages 2 and 3 are covered as well as various topics for GCSE or A-Level and Baccalaureat groups.
What’s more, the beautiful and desolate beaches of Northumberland are close by should you wish to study the rugged coastline.
Coursework at Ford Castle is therefore the best of both worlds – the real opportunities for study that come from a non- manufactured, natural environment coupled with the help, support and periphery activities of a managed centre. Teachers can relax and leave the planning, delivery, catering, accommodation and fun to us!
