Education at the orchard

The Community Orchard’s education programme has been developed in close partnership with local schools and all sessions are packed with a range of fun, hands-on, curriculum-focused activities that allow every child to blossom.

In a creative outdoor classroom, pupils can immerse themselves in everything from practical science to worlds of the imagination. Topics covered can include  scientific discovery, role-play, seasonal activities, environmental crafts, sensory exploration, orienteering, and cooking on an open fire.  

We specialise in working closely with Schools, and SEN providers in developing bespoke sessions and have enjoyed a 100% “very satisfied” feedback rating from visiting education professionals.
