Open Farm Sunday 2019

Open Farm Sunday is a nationwide event (https://farmsunday.org) and this year Tom’s Farm at NCA was a first time participant. We estimate that over 900 members of our local community came out in the sunshine to meet our wonderful rare breed stock and to share our rural oasis, just a stone’s throw away from Wandsworth Common. From toddler to octogenarian, everyone enjoyed the exceptional facilities and we are grateful to our partners The Metropolitan Police, The Oxford Sandy & Black Pig Society http://www.oxfordsandypigs.co.uk & The British Pig Association for their continued support and guidance.

On behalf of the children at Nightingale Community Academy and the students at Orchard Hill College I would like to say a huge thank you to our team of staff and volunteers and to everybody who donated to our conservation cause. We raised almost £2,000 in donations which will help to run the farm over the summer months when we do not receive income from our teaching programme.
For details on how you might support the school by donating please visit our fundraising page. If you wish to visit or volunteer please email info@nightingaleca.org for further details.

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.
