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