School Day Visits
Explore the 'natural curriculum' at Bore Place!
Our schools' day visit programme has been designed around our whole-site project - Bore Place: We Are Nature. This is an ambitious, ongoing conservation scheme aiming to restore habitats and champion nature, and we need your help to do it!
What does a day at Bore Place look like?
No two days are the same at Bore Place. The format of your day will depend on the season, as well as the age of the group, with activities tailored to each Key Stage.
Most days will begin with a tour of our organic dairy farm, which is at the heart of what we do. We will then widen our focus by exploring farmland habitats, and the wildlife that lives there. Your school will have the opportunity to take part in surveying or practical conservation projects that will directly contribute to our understanding of our meadows, woodlands, ponds, orchard, rivers, hedgerows, grasslands or soils. Learn about species such as farmland birds, great crested newts, reptiles, bats, dormice and earthworms.
We aim to inspire young people with a love of the natural world, educate them about food production and regenerative farming, and involve them in taking care of our world for future generations.
If you are looking to cover a specific topic or curriculum area please let us know. We are best placed to help you with science (plant and animal biology), cooking and nutrition (where food comes from and seasonality) and geography (human impact on landscapes).
Most programmes are suitable or adaptable for wheelchair users and visitors with limited mobility. Teachers are welcome for pre-visits and risk assessments are provided at the time of booking. There is no VAT on day visits and no charge for accompanying adults.
