Our expert tutors create and deliver geography experiences to suit your requirements.

Environments at FSC centres

Our residential trips can include a selection of environments to suit your requirements.

14-16:

Coastal

Where the land meets the sea, the UK’s coastline is over 7500 miles in length, and it’s a place that’s always changing through erosion, transportation and deposition. Coastlines are influenced by many physical and human forces, with dramatic consequences for the people who live there.

 

Rivers

Constantly changing, water levels rise and fall after rain and with the seasons. Erosion, transportation and deposition can all alter the characteristics of the channel and the regime of the river

Urban

Towns and cities have experienced dramatic changes in the last 30 years, including pressures from out of town shops, economic challenges, changing function and the decline of the high street.

Rural

Areas which have experienced dramatic changes in the last 30 years, including counter-urbanisation, changing farm practices and the decline of rural services.

Glaciation

Although the UK’s last glaciers disappeared around 10,000 years ago, the post-glacial landscape of the UK still provide plenty of evidence for the action of estimating ice and meltwater in both the uplands and lowlands.

Inequalities

Students will study a place, local to the centre, that demonstrates one of the major consequences of ongoing urban or rural processes: inequalities. Social, economic or environmental inequalities are suffered by different members of our communities as a result of complex geographies shaping our places. Students will explore where and why this happens and consider how it is being sustainably managed.

Regeneration

Regeneration is a complex process aiming to turn areas into sustainable, desirable and effective spaces for us to use and enjoy. Here you can expect students to explore a site, local to the centre, that has undergone regeneration or is in need of the process and consider the interlinked geographies that shape that place’s regeneration journey.

Place

Changing socio-economic and demographic characteristics of local places, plus the cultural meanings and representations attached to different places.

Water and Carbon

Size of stores and flows in the water and carbon cycles at a local scale, such as small drainage basin, woodland or peat bog.

Glaciation

Although the UK’s last glaciers disappeared around 10,000 years ago, the post-glacial landscape of the UK still provide plenty of evidence for the action of estimating ice and meltwater in both the uplands and lowlands.

Investigations

At a local scale to consider place meaning and representation changing economic function and socio-demographic characteristics of places.
