What We Do

We have a small array of livestock that all have their jobs on the farm and enough space to attempt to grow whatever the pupils want (although pineapples are not possible, no matter how many times I am asked).


The farm is a fluid project that develops as it is required. Pupils are invited to touch, smell, taste, and question everything they see and hear.

In the last year Great Farmstead has facilitated lessons from ICT and Art to History and Science, proving that any lesson can be taken outside, especially when the outside is as beautiful as ours.

The realisation that to get the best out of children, to prepare them for the workplace and empower them with the confidence of independent thought - imperative to real-world scenarios where problem-solving, collaboration and resilience are vital day-to-day competencies - the traditional classroom is not the be-all and end-all.
