Jamie's Farm, hard work and amazing learning!

Jamie's Farm is a unique opportunity for young people to experience a full life swap and digital detox on a working farm. At the beginning of the week, the children hand their phones in and don't get them back until they leave. This opens up the mind to new experiences and challenges, including cooking, games, hiking, herding and caring for farm animals. Over the course of the week, pupils and staff live, work, cook and clean together as one big family. The aim of the farm is to re-engage pupils and get them to work outside their comfort zone. Jamie's Farm helps them discover that, with a bit of love and support, they can achieve anything they want to. 

Last week, a small group of our pupils were supported to attend Jamie's Farm for almost one week. There were huge positives, challenges and a lot for our pupils to be proud of! Well done to everyone involved and thank you to our supporting staff for ensuring pupils can access this opportunity!
