School can be a real challenge, especially when you've got problems in other areas of your life. Our aim is to help children better cope with and see beyond these difficulties. We want to help them grow in confidence and realise their potential.
Primary Alternative Provision
We offer nurturing, curriculum-linked programmes of therapeutic farm-based activities to help children better understand themselves and provide schools with valuable insights into each child’s learning needs.
We have had numerous successes where children have gone on to positively contrubute in class with a much reduced risk of exclusion. Each year we work with scores of primary school children who are either at serious risk of being permanently excluded from their school or have already been excluded.
Secondary Alternative Provision
Preparing for GCSE's is stressful enough. But if you just don't feel capable of exams or things aren't working out at home it can cause real distress and anxiety. Or it may be that you want to get experience and a qualification in animal care.
We provide opportunities for secondary school children to get involved in working farm life, improve their employability and gain qualifications that will help them gain an apprenticeship or college placement.
Post-16 Additional Learning Needs and Disabilities
If you access a personal budget we have the perfect programme to allow you to explore and develop essential skills for independent living as well as farm based vocational skills in animal care and horticulture. The programme runs five days a week, fifty weeks of the year.
