Education on the Farm 

Primary, Secondary and Post-16 Education

Education is at the heart of what we do on the farm. 

Young people of all ages benefit from the time they spend learning about all aspects of farming and the countryside.

 

We have been successfully providing alternative educational provision on the farm for nearly 10 years.  We have particular success with pupils who:

  •         are keen to pursue careers working on the land or in the farming industry

  •         are more difficult to reach and who are not thriving in the school environment

  •         have learning or behavioural issues

  •         have autism or Aspergers

  •         are non-attenders

  •         are home-educated

All young people benefit enormously from spending time on the farm each week.  Working with animals and being outdoors gives pupils a sense of responsibility and increases their confidence and self-esteem.  Their team-working and social skills are improved and this is reported to translate to a more positive experience when they are back in the school or college environment.

Organised School Visits

We offer FREE educational farm tours for primary and secondary schools and nursery groups. 

 

These visits are usually for around two hours and are led by our volunteer Farm Leaders.  If you want us to cover a particular area of the curriculum please let us know and we will do our best to apply this to your tour.

 

To book an educational visit please email the farm office.
