SPECIALISTS IN FIELD STUDIES

Ryan Cronin
Stormont School

Very impressed with the standard of rooms and hygiene. The grounds and location are also stunning. The quality of food is excellent. Lovely, knowledgeable staff and team who really engaged and enthused the students.

Michael Tetley
Thornton Grammar School

Our students have had a great time and a valuable experience. Very impressed.

Paul Ferguson
Sandwell College

Levels of attention to detail are exemplary. The supporting knowledge and tuition provided by staff was outstanding. Staff engaged the students throughout. 

Scott Walker
Rodillian Academy

Excellent centre, excellent food, excellent staff.

Amy Rush
Rainham Mark Grammar School

Excellent facilities. Students enjoyed all food – especially the puddings! Tutors were excellent – kept the students motivated and subject knowledge was fantastic. 

Dan Sayers
St Hildas School

There are few places in life which strive to do everything and more than “what it says on the tin,” but in eight visits to The Cranedale Centre, I have always found this to be so. Our girls have had a simply marvellous field trip and we will be back next year!

David Sladen
Sherburn High School

I’m so pleased we chose Cranedale to lead on our fieldwork this year. It was an experience that I just don’t think we ourselves could offer in terms of the breadth and depth of study in the short time available. The tutors were excellent – supportive, passionate and friendly.

Vicky Barlow
De Ferrers Academy

Tutors were excellent and really challenged our students. Knew what was needed for the course and kept us all engaged.

Judith Pressley
Ingleton Primary School

Thank you so much for a fantastic time – as always. Brilliant course work, fantastic staff and wonderful facilities. Many thanks again.

Becky Harrold
Kingsley School

Excellent – Very welcoming atmosphere. Creative learning at its best. I recommend this centre to everyone I talk to! The tutors engaged fully with all pupils.

Laura Cookson
Longcroft School

All tutors were exceptional again. Always impressed with subject knowledge, particularly with things that stretch our highest ability students.

Susi Noot/Sarah Walters
Bolton Girls School

We feel very well looked after. Our objectives for the trip have been met, the girls have thoroughly enjoyed the time and learnt loads. A HUGE THANK YOU.

Tracey Taylor
Bury Girls Grammar School

This was my first ever visit and I have been so impressed – especially the standard of teaching and preparation that we could never do in school. Not sure that I could ever stay youth hostel or FSC again after the accommodation and food.

Nikki Ashton
Tuxford Academy

Choosing to do the investigate skills approach rather than collecting NEA data has proven much more valuable to us as teachers and to the students. This has allowed students to experience an in depth understanding of the NEA process and are now well equipped to begin/undertake their own investigations.

Jane Ayling
King's Peterborough

We have recently been to another field studies centre in Yorkshire  – what you offer is substantially better. We really appreciate the money you are spending on equipment, and the time you are spending developing exam board specific fieldwork.

Guy Pendlebury
Great Marlow

I have been coming to Cranedale for 20 years and every time I visit I go home with the same feeling – an outstanding field studies centre, with passionate staff who make learning interesting and fun.

James Clark
Newcastle School for Boys

Fantastic tutors really make this trip as special as it is, and are a huge part of why we return every 2 years! The boys have the most amazing time down to the dedication, warmth and professionalism of all the staff. Thank you!

Terri Southwell
The Lyceum

Once again another fantastic visit to the Cranedale Centre. The children have a wonderful time which translates back into the classroom where we see their confidence grow, they become more independent and grown up.

Kirsty Wheeler
Redborne

The centre is efficiently run, spotless and the food is amazing. All the staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. Most importantly for us the equipment, field sites and follow up were spot on in terms of being appropriate and allowed our students to contextualise their data.

Rob Jones
King's School (Germany)

Another fantastic visit, Thank you. The tutors were excellent and delivered an outstanding week for our students. Several remarked that they did not want to leave; which after 5 days; is a testament to the centre.

Bev Elliot
Abbey Grange Academy

Highly delighted with how the fieldtrip has gone. Students clearly understand how they could apply the skills learnt to their own independent investigation.

Charlotte Brewster
Ockbrook School

Absolutely Fantastic stay – having seen it from both sides as a pupil (2005-2015) to a staff member today (2018). Wonderful staff and a brilliant opportunity for all!

James Kay
Caistor Grammer

Please pass on my thanks to everyone involved with our visit. Your infectious enthusiasm has a huge impact on the students and the impact of that cannot be overstated.

Rachel Hawkes
AESG

We have really enjoyed our time at Cranedale. All staff have been fantastic. Our tutor was superb and delivered a lot of content to exceptional standard. The food was a big hit, we will be back!

Nick Gadsby
Benton Park School

The staff in the kitchen were excellent. The food (as usual) was to a high quality and students commented how nice the kitchen staff are.
