The deadline has been extended to allow more time for students to sign up, but time is running out so don’t miss out and sign up soon!

Year 7 Jamie’s  Farm

Since 2005, Jamie’s Farm has been hosting school groups from all across the country. They aim to provide an array of farm based learning activities, from animal care and log chopping, to cooking and nature walks, in an environment that many have never experienced before. Students from Bolder Academy will get to experience this at either the Lewes or Hereford site.

Outline of Activities

To accommodate our Yr 7 cohort two trips will be running to Jamie’s Farm.

Trip A will run from Monday 6th July (morning) until Wednesday 8th July (lunchtime).  Students will then return to the Academy and participate in lessons and activities for the remainder of the week.

Trip B will run from Wednesday 8th July (morning) until Friday 10th July (lunchtime). Prior to attending Jamie’s Farm, students will participate in lessons and activities on Monday 6th and Tuesday 7th July.

Throughout their stay, students will participate in a number of activities led by Jamie’s farm staff. These will include:

  • Farming
  • Log chopping
  • preparing wood for our fires.
  • Cooking – preparing each meal for their peers.
  • Woodwork – including building.
  • Gardening.
  • Country and nature walks.
  • Evening Activities: Farm Olympics, Movie night, and small group coaching.

Students will spend one night camping, for which they will need to bring a sleeping bag (all other camping equipment will be provided). They will then spend one night sleeping indoors at the farm lodge. All meals throughout the duration of their residential will be included.

Cost

The overall cost of the residential is £185 per student.
