St Piers farm provides a stimulating learning environment for our students. They are able to get up close and personal with all of the farm animals and learn how to handle, clean, feed and care for each animal; watch when the vet visits; sort, clean and sell eggs; sell meat from the freezer.
Students are also able to become involved with the showing of livestock in local agricultural shows.
In the horticulture department is somewhere that students nurture plants, learn how food is grown and develop skills for the future. With polytunnels, raised beds, a greenhouse, orchard, grass areas and garden beds, students learn to sow seeds, nurture plants, make hanging baskets, grow vegetables and flowers, weed and mulch and prepare beds.
Students visit local gardens, forests, parks, garden nurseries and places of interest to broaden their understanding.
