Autumn '23: We are currently turning the secret garden into a space that students and staff can enjoy. The space was very overgrown with bramble - which we love but it doesn't work that well if you want to make is usable for humans.
The hard work was to get as many bramble roots out as possible and to clear away the rubbish.
We have started planting hundreds of daffodils, creating paths and revamping the pond. But there is still a lot to do: more bulbs, more revamping and more wildflower seeds ... come and support us!
Summer '23: The school is now the new home to this fantastic garden by Viriditas. It was all hands on deck and we were happy to help.
Winter 22/23: Planting of a hawthorn hedge. Hawthorn is one of the best hedges for wildlife and it supports about 150 different species of insects. Bees, butterflies and other pollinating insects adore the lightly fragranced flowers that bloom in May as they provide an abundance of nectar and pollen. Moth caterpillars will feed on the foliage. Birds such as Thrushes and Dunnocks can be found nesting in hawthorn whilst Blackbirds, Finches and Starling will feat on the red berries in autumn.
