Education & School Bookings

Our Education Programme offers lively but focussed outdoor education in a safe and dynamic environment. Our site and Education Officer are accredited by the Countryside and Environmental Visit Accreditation Scheme (CEVAS) and we have also been awarded the Learning Outside the Classroom Quality Badge (LOtC). Our educational visits are primarily aimed at Early Years, Foundation Stage, KS1 and KS2 but we are always happy to design a bespoke visit to meet your needs.

Self led visits can happen at almost any time, but please to contact us to book your visit so that we can make sure we have availability.

Activity sessions need to be booked in advance. They are available Monday to Thursday, (Fridays can be booked at least 30 days in advance). Our activity sessions can be booked for groups of approximately 30 at a time. The length of the session varies according to the keystage it is delivered to. 

We have designed sessions with the National Curriculum in mind further information on this can be found in the activity session details in the drop down menu. 

The farm is wheelchair friendly and all activities have been designed to be accessed by SEN groups.

Our Education Officer Jenny is happy to talk you through what we offer in more detail so you can call her on 0116 253 7582 or send her an email
