School Visits to Goodheart Farm Animal Sanctuary

Looking for new experiences to enrich your students' learning?

Get hands on and meet our 300 rescued animals!

We offer an organic outdoor learning experience to all students, including those who may struggle to focus in the traditional classroom setting.

With the backdrop of the beautiful Worcestershire countryside, we offer 3 different aspects of the Education Endowment Foundation’s teaching and learning strategies specifically for engaging Pupil Premium students, but to the benefit of all: 

  • Outdoor adventure learning
  • Collaborative learning
  • Social and emotional learning

Children will learn curriculum content in a fun, engaging, and enriching way

Your students will be able to unwind and enjoy feeding and interacting with our friendly cattle, sheep, pigs, goats, horses, turkeys and hens. Don your overalls, grab some tasty treats and prepare to get stuck in.

You choose how best to engage your students! With a variety of options available, we can work together to create a fulfilling and enjoyable educational experience.
