Day Visits

We offer a wide range of tutor led activities for primary and secondary schools that enhance learning in a range of curriculum areas, including science, geography, history, design and technology, and art and design.

Full range of programmes and detailed itineraries below.

Bore Place is a 500 acre organic dairy farm with a market garden and other areas to explore including woodlands, ponds and meadows, making it a fantastic venue to get your pupils outdoors learning about the countryside, and finding out about food, farming and the environment. Our purpose-built facilities include classrooms, cooking areas, toilets and hand washing and free parking for coaches. Each school is provided with a classroom space for use throughout the day with cloakroom facilities including pegs for personal belongings. Outdoor lunch spaces are provided for use during good weather, and alternative indoor space is available for inclement weather.

Most programmes are suitable for wheelchair users and visitors with limited mobility. Teachers are welcome for pre-visits and risk assessments are provided for each programme at the time of booking.

There is no VAT on day visits and no charge for accompanying adults.
