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.

They learn the signs of animal health and symptoms of ill health, and the setting up, maintenance and cleaning of animal accommodation.
