The foundations of conservation and sustainable farming practice underpin all educational activities on the Farm: biodiversity surveys, the impact of grazing, and other conservation projects are tied into the Biology, Geography, and PSHE curriculum. Pupils and staff also work with local schools to further promote conservationism.
Animal welfare remains our primary concern – providing genuine opportunities for compassion is at the heart of our Farm philosophy. All tutor groups are encouraged to take on farming responsibilities to promote these values across the School. The sheep, goats, and poultry are managed in line with traditional and current farming practices, including rearing and health care.
