PGL offer Geography Field Trips to their centres to help 14-17 year olds studying Geography experience hands- on fieldwork in preparation for their GCSE/IGCSE exams. We are hoping to look at River and Coastal Environments.
– All activity instruction, supervision and use of specialist equipment
– Curriculum-linked course combining engaging adventure activities on land and water to develop different skills
– Full board accommodation
– A PGL ‘Groupie’ who will look after you and your group for your entire stay
– A full evening entertainment programme tailored for your group
The young people will be doing approximately 50% Geography and 50% PGL activities.
Due to transportation capacity, there are no adult spaces available on this trip.
We will take unaccompanied students aged 13yr+ on this field trip. Please join the Educationista Facebook Group to follow the discussion on this trip.
You are responsible for transporting your teen to and from PGL Osmington Bay.
Teen must be comfortable being away
If you are interested in being a responsible adult for unaccompanied children aged 13rs+ and hold (or are willing to obtain) an enhanced DBS certificate and have a people-carrier sized car that you are willing to use for the field trip (or bigger) then please contact us.
(However, you will still have to pay for your own adult space)
If groups of friends are going, you may nominate the people you would like to be grouped with for the activities and roomed with (see below for further details of how to do that)
This is also an ideal opportunity for home-ed teens to get together and socialise over lots of fun activities.

A Note About Rooms & Group Preferences:
Please could you indicate in the “rooming preferences” box (which appears once you begin) one or more of the following preferences :
- whether your children would be able to share with other children (and nominate the other children). There would be no adults in this room.
- whether you want to room together as a family. You may also share with another family – in fact, it would be really, really helpful if you could share with another family if at all possible. If you have a student participating in the Geography Field Trip, then you can include them in your rooming preferences
We will sub-divide into smaller groups. If you have a preference to be grouped with one or more other students, please also indicate this in the “activity group preferences” box (which appears near the bottom of the booking form)
We will do our best to accommodate your requests but please note that it will be subject to the room & group numbers working out mathematically.
