Spring 2020 Newsletter for Schools

Spring 2020 Newsletter for Schools

Over the past few months we have been busy extending our facilities, developing new programmes and making that special Magdalen Farm trip even more exciting!

So, please spare a couple of minutes to see if we have something to meet your school’s learning needs:


Themed Day Trips to Magdalen

Let us plan a magical day here on the Farm.  Visit the pigs, chickens and goats or discover wild habitats and nature, build dens in the woods and make fires without matches or challenge your class to our fun low ropes course.  Kids also love our eco-cooking session where you can cook pizzas or use our blender bikes to make smoothies. 

We have activities to suit all ages and abilities.  Let us know your topic or theme and we will plan a fun and exciting day out that your students will remember. Rates start from £8.50 per student per day.


"Inquiry" Days

Let Magdalen answer the questions your students want to know about.  3 new special investigation days are available that are all linked to the curriculum.  Choose from Rivers Studies, Habitat Hunters or Environmental/Sustainability Days using practical, hands-on learning that only the outdoors can provide.



Learning Outside The Classroom - no matter what the weather!

2020 sees the introduction of new and improved teaching spaces.  Our revamped polytunnels, where we grow fruit and vegetables all year round, provide a warm covered area so children can get hands-on gardening experience no matter what the weather.  

School discounts 

If you are thinking of a longer term programme of several visits to Magdalen Farm take advantage of our 10% discount for 4 or more trips booked at the same time.  Bring the same group or a different class on each visit but save as they learn.  Alternatively book a school residential in the autumn to take be eligible for low season rates. 


Stay in touch!
