Winner of the “Best School Farm 2020/21”

Last week, Tom’s Farm have attended the fantastic School Farms Network conference!
There was an awards ceremony that recognises hard work and excellence across the country and we are pleased to announce we were awarded…..
“Best use of school farm during the pandemic” and finally went on to win overall
“Best school farm 2020/21”
We’re incredibly humbled and proud of this achievement, a huge amount of hard work and dedication goes in to this project.
Massive thanks to The School Farm Network, our young people who attend and the whole team that makes Tom’s Farm the project that it is.

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.
