 Travelling to field sites

Transport can be provided by FSC Orielton This will either be in a centre minibus or local coach provider depending on the size of your group, and the cost will reflect the length of the journey. This needs to be pre-arranged once the timetable has been agreed with your tutor. Please advise us if any of the accompanying school staff are minibus drivers.

There is no charge for fieldwork sites within the centre grounds

Alternatively if you have your own school minibus you can use that to travel to field sites. Please inform the centre if you will or will not have space for the course tutor to travel with you. Some schools keep the coach they have used to travel to the centre for the duration of the fieldtrip – depending on circumstances, we may be able to accommodate the driver at the centre, or can suggest alternatives nearby.
