Nice to see ewe!

It’s a very exciting time of the year for us at Tom’s Farm. All of our ewes and nanny goats are having scans to see if they are pregnant and how many lambs/goat kids they are carrying.

Students took it in turns to come down and learn about the reproductive system and see the foetuses on the screens; a fantastic first-hand experience.

In total around 41 lambs and goat kids are expected, which is enough to keep everyone at the farm very busy!

Farm Manager, Josh, said “We are happy with our results and all the sheep are doing very well.”

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.
