The farmarm is a fantastic facility which enhances student learning at Oathall in many different ways. We are able to offer recognised qualifications in this field but many different subject areas use it in a practical way to aid learning including art, maths, English, science and even ICT.
There has been a farm here for over 70 years; it was established in the Second World War and is now made up of extensive fields, animal enclosures, a large barn and glasshouses to grow seasonal plants.
We keep a variety of livestock including pigs, cattle, sheep and poultry and in 2012 opened a farm shop selling produce made on the farm to the local community.
In recent years we’ve welcomed visitors such as HRH Prince of Wales and Alan Titchmarsh to the farm as well as hundreds of school and community groups.
You can see some photos of our farm here via the school’s Flickr pages.
