As a charity the Field Studies Council aims to get people learning outdoors and remove potential barriers to learning. 

That’s why we offer grants to schools to help everyone access the benefits of environmental education. Over 10 years, we’ve given nearly half a million pounds to hundreds of schools

London Parks funded opportunities

Our partner The Royal Parks has received generous funding from the Royal Parks Foundation USA, enabling them to offer a limited number of bursaries for eligible London schools who would otherwise be unable to visit.

The Greenwich Park Revealed project offers subsidised school sessions thanks to funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund and National Lottery Community Fund.

What else does Field Studies Council offer? 

We believe in the benefits of environment education which can be accessed through our wide ranging courses and experiences, and wildlife guides.
