Whirlow L.I.F.E. (Learning In a Farming Environment)

We play a vital role in supporting children and young people facing a complex combination of difficulties, including medical and mental health conditions, learning needs and disabilities, and heart-breaking personal circumstances.

Whether our students are living with cancer, anxiety, autism or ADHD; overcoming neglect or coping with bereavement, our unique farm provides a safe, nurturing environment that equips them with the tools to learn, grow in confidence, self-esteem and resilience.

"A highly supportive environment for some of the city’s most vulnerable young people."
Sheffield City Council

Secondary 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 Provision

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.
