“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”

NIKKI ASHTON

Tuxford Academy

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

Amy Rush

Rainham Mark Grammar 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!”.

“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.”
