Incubation Project

Nightingale Community Academy is now offering an Incubation Project to schools. This was inspired by the amount of interest we had in our own projects and is an opportunity that we are able to offer to other schools.

Schools will be able to hire a complete incubation package comprising of:

  • An easy to use incubator
  • A step by step guide
  • Candle lamp
  • Fertile eggs to hatch
  • A small brooder to contain the chicks allowing them to stay safe and warm

The Incubation Project allows young people to understand the life cycle and in just 3 weeks, using the tools in your pack, young people can witness an embryo develop and hatch into a chick.

We believe that education of this nature is vitally important if future generations are to engage knowledgeably where food and farming are concerned. This is a fantastic project and we sincerely hope our enthusiasm and commitment convince you to get involved. The project has a small cost attached which contributes towards funding our fantastic city farm.

Tom’s Farm is a fabulous legacy that continues to influence lives and open doors to young people. If you wish to be a part of this incredible project, please contact Josh, Farm Manager on jfarrell@nightingaleca.org

The principal and leadership team, well supported by the Orchard Hill College and Academy Trust, have provided strong leadership, which has had a positive impact on the school’s effectiveness. As a result, there have been improvements in all areas, most noticeably in pupils’ behaviour and attitudes, the curriculum and in the wider opportunities for pupils.
