The field club studies all aspects of natural history including plants, insects, mammals, birds and geology.

Its weekly summer outings are for observation and recording, as well as for general enjoyment of the countryside and are reported at regular indoor meetings. Please see Summer Programme for meeting venue and time.

From October to April, indoor meetings, with talks by visiting speakers, are held at the Sixth Form College almost every Wednesday evening. Meetings commence at 7.30pm and finish at approx. 9.00pm
