Magilligan Field Centre is located in one of the most varied and unspoilt parts of the coast of Northern Ireland.
The centre offers environment-based field courses linked to the National Curriculum and examination board syllabi providing excellent facilities for outdoor-based learning including waterproof and protective clothing for students and staff as well as a wide range of appropriate fieldwork equipment from measuring tapes to data loggers.
There are three classrooms to cater for the various groups using the Centre. These are used for preparatory work prior to embarking on any field excursion and for follow up work, often using the centre’s laboratory equipment.
A computer suite is also available facilitating the incorporation of ICT within courses. Qualified teaching staff have a wide experience and knowledge of the local environment, and are available to accompany all groups. In 2003 Magilligan Field Centre became the first recipient in Northern Ireland of the Eco-Centres Award.
