Mount Pleasant School Farm is a new educational facility. It is on the southern edge of the city (on Icknield Street), situated within the site of a working dairy farm. The farm has cattle, sheep, pigs & chickens.
Peter Charles is our farmer who lives at the dairy farm. Nina Hatch, an experienced OLS teacher, organises a full day of educational activities for every school visit.
This is real-life learning outside the classroom. A day at the farm provides a variety of ‘hands on’ experiences linking where our food comes from to the school curriculum.
