Brockhill Performing Arts College has a working farm which is embedded into the whole school curriculum and the innovative great outdoors curriculum where every year 7 and 8 student has a lesson on the farm every week – we believe the only school in the country to offer such a curriculum. We offer Farming School, a set of curriculum linked lessons to primary school pupils. The farm also hosts a number of annual events and welcomes visits from community groups.
