Exploration

Whether you’re a local school, or coming to us from further afield, we have a wealth of original and exciting excursions for you to enjoy.

Explore the rich history and diversity of this beautiful region whilst based at Ford Castle.  From life on the Roman Wall, via early Christianity and the Vikings on Holy Island and York to the Victorian achievements of Cragside and then there are the wonders of Edinburgh.

Our talented, well-trained Group Leaders will accompany you and enhance the learning benefits of each visit, whilst students will learn because they are engaged by what they experience and our educational resources become a means of retention and useful reference for the future.

Some of our courses include fieldwork trips, but we will work out an itinerary so that you can choose which visits you’d most like to make.   We can handle transport if you’d prefer and the admission fees for all of our excursions can be included in your booking price.
