Leeson House Field Studies Centre

The Premier Field Studies Centre In Dorset


Leeson House, the ideal venue for Primary to A Level fieldtrips, is a secluded and comfortable residential centre situated near Swanage, Dorset on the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site.

It is close to many classic geography, geology and biology fieldwork sites and set within 7 acres of inspiring and diverse grounds.

Leeson House can accommodate up to 77 students and 12 accompanying staff and we take residential bookings 7 days a week throughout the year.

We also offer a wide range of day visits and outreach activities.

Leeson House is part of the Dorset County Council Outdoor Education Service which is part of Children's Services within Dorset County Council. Leeson House has been welcoming schools from Dorset and beyond for the past 50 years.
