Educational Visits

Wick Grange Farm welcomes groups of all ages for visits.  It has varied soils, farming methods and wildlife habitats, which make it an ideal place for people to visit to expand their knowledge and have fun.  We can accommodate different interest groups and can tailor the farm walk and activities accordingly.  There are also opportunities for your own fieldwork or research.  
We also offer an alternative curriculum for students from local High Schools through the Care Farm 

Facilities

We treat the whole farm as a huge teaching area, the crops, the wildflower margins, the river meadows, the orchard, the farmhouse garden, the paddocks...

 

We also have 2 meeting rooms with displays, accessible toilets and raised beds as well as a mobile compost toilet, gazebos and BBQ for activities away from the main farm buildings.

School Visits

A huge range of topics can be taught at Wick Grange Farm.  Each visit will be planned to ensure pupils have hands on experience and are able to investigate ideas for themselves. Activities will be organised in partnership with the visiting teachers to fit their curriculum needs. Isobel is a trained, experienced teacher, familiar with the National Curriculum and is able to put learning into context. (For examples, see blog)

Home Education

We regularly host visits for groups of home educators throughout the year.  (For the latest visit - see blog).These visits cater for mixed ages and are usually on seasonal themes.  We are open to suggestions and we can adapt the activities to address specific areas of the curriculum.

Booking a visit

Please contact Isobel or Tom for more information and to discuss the opportunities. You are welcome to come on a pre-visit to the farm to see for yourself what is available. As we have some funding from Natural England, we are able to offer some school visits free of charge.


We would like to ensure that  you have a happy, interesting and safe day out.
