On a Wednesday afternoon a group of students pack a picnic lunch and head out to the farm where they spend good quality time with one another and the horses. They muck out stables, groom the horses, often needing to dip them and then of course they also get to ride the horses on the farm. Playing music and learning formations with both horse and rider is an integral part of the holistic education offered at Study House. The students are taught the basic anatomical names of the parts of the horse as well as the tack used to ride.
A fun day held during school hours where the Keystage 2 students put on an impressive show of their entrepreneur skills. Great stalls, amazing products and an opportunity for the younger learners to enjoy the experience of a fantastic market day.
As we are situated in the heart of the botanical gardens we have made it compulsory for all students to take Environmental Management as a subject from as early as Keystage 2. The syllabus is designed to teach learners about sustainable development in a world where the security of resources and life sustaining systems is endangered by human impact. It draws upon disciplines such as Biology, Earth Science, Geography and Economics. Students learn how the environment can be managed sustainably in the future from a local as well as a global perspective
