Farm Club

Students from all years follow the care rotas for Guinea Pigs, Chickens, and Degus. We plant and harvest fruit and vegetables, which are used in the school canteen. We also play games and take part in craft activities to raise funds, such as making hanging baskets and baking dog biscuits.

We also offer a Saturday Farm Club for children aged 10+. We offer a range of activities, including horticulture, animal care, and environmental awareness.

We welcome visits from either local schools/organisations or members of the public on Saturdays between 10am-2pm. Bring the whole family!
