We would like to congratulate our Year 11 students on their exam results. They have all worked incredibly hard and we are incredibly proud of what they have achieved.

As always, our wonderful staff team have been there through the ups and downs and we would like to thank them for their dedication and support.

We wish all our leavers the very best on the next steps of their educational journey and look forward to hearing about their experiences, news and achievements in the future.

Want your school to be the top-listed School/college?

School Farm

New Forest School have two school farms, which provide our students the opportunity to engage in horticulture and animal management, either as part of their learning (City and Guilds up to Level 3) or for the therapeutic value that working with animals and being outside can bring.

We encourage students to grow their own fresh fruit, vegetables, herbs and flowers and provide a focus on field to fork by incorporating the farm produce in the catering lessons back at the school or selling this as part of enterprise projects.
We are keen to ensure all students understand the impact on the environment they are having and this is a core theme running through all of our work whether this is in respect of recycling, re-use, preservation and building wildlife habitats or responsible sourcing.

Both of our farm sites have classrooms attached with qualified teachers and support staff who plan lessons to make the best use of the farm environment. This can incorporate sensory integration therapy from our Occupational Therapists.
