Our farm is a fully functioning smallholding with sheep, calves, pigs, goats and donkeys, as well as a ménage of smaller animals. It's somewhere students can focus on caring for others, learn valuable life skills, build confidence and face new experiences.

Originally set up over 100 years ago, St Piers Farm has always been popular with the students at St Piers College. However up until recently the farm could not be used in poor weather conditions, it was difficult for students with mobility problems to access and could only cater for 14 students at any one time.

Thanks to an incredible quarter of a million pounds, generously donated by the public and local organisations, the farm now comprises six log cabin classrooms, four animal shelters, a hay store and a wetlands sensory walkway, all of which enables up to 80 students to take vocational and non vocational courses in animal care and horticulture.
