Every student at Crowdys Hill School has the opportunity to spend time working on the educational farm.

Students in years 7 to 9 regularly go out to the farm in groups of two or three to learn about different aspects of animal care, both with our small animals and larger animals. They help with general care of the animals such as ensuring they have food and water, as well as mucking out stables and ‘poo picking’ the various fields. If the situation arises and students are willing to help then they can assist with any medical issues, which may range from cleaning minor cuts to helping to bandage a pony’s hoof.

Once students reach year 10 and 11 they can chose the farm as an option subject, this is known as Land Studies. Students must demonstrate skills and knowledge as they work through units.  If the course is completed then the students can attain either a City and Guilds award, certificate or national diploma in Land Studies.

Sixth Form students can choose Horticultural as dedicated Vocational Course option to achieve further accreditation’s as listed above.

Teachers also use the farm to help embed functional teaching across the curriculum.

Primary students regularly visit our farm and engage in activities caring for the animals.
