Magilligan Field Centre (MFC) is located in Binevenagh Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), one of the most varied and unspoilt parts of the coast of Northern Ireland. The immediate area includes contrasts between upland environments on the basalt escarpment and a coastal lowland with extensive sand dunes. MFC has access to a wide range of high quality habitats providing suitable and safe fieldwork study opportunities. The centre is within comfortable driving distance of the North Antrim coast, Rathlin Island and the Sperrin Mountains.
MFC staff facilitate and provide on and off site support for teachers and students in the delivery of outdoor education programmes with a primary focus on field study investigations. These are delivered across a range of subject areas, in a variety of settings and to a range of age groups from pre-school children to adult learners. Programmes are run on a day or residential visit. TPL is a key focus of MFC support through bespoke course for teachers and as an embedded feature of programme delivery for visiting school groups.
