Our school farm is situated at Bartley and is home to our Animal Management and Horticulture courses. Alongside poly-tunnels and greenhouses it also features a small frog pond, a range of raised beds and is home to a growing menagerie of animals. From rabbits, guinea pigs and tortoises to pigs, hens and goats, students enjoy learning to care for all the animals as well as spending time developing and maintaining the infrastructure of the farm. More information can be found on our dedicated School Farm page.
