Squirrels is a family, teacher and student friendly riding school. They work in partnership with us to provide a safe, comfortable and educational space for our students. We use them as a regular part of our off-site curriculum. Squirrels can offer accreditations for our students as well as simply a place to gain confidence and social skills. Squirrels caters for all levels from lead rein to advanced skills including GCSEs. Squirrels is located on Bluebell Hill just off the M2 so is only a short distance from our school.
Curly's Farm is a small working farm set in 10 acres of gorgeous Kent countryside, on the Isle of Sheppey. Curly's Farm prides itself on being fully inclusive where everyone can learn and develop their farming and livestock handling skills.
On Curly’s Farm we work together carrying out essential and meaningful, everyday farming tasks working with the livestock that call Curly's Farm home. Learning new skills to improve confidence, self-esteem and working as a group, the young farmers will improve their social skills, tolerance of others and have an important role within the group and the farm team.
We all learn to care for livestock, grow and care for home grown produce such as fruits and vegetables and learn the techniques to safely care for the farm animals
