The Agricultural and Rural Centre is a centre that offers a farming environment to enable young people aged 9 - 17 to re-engage in Education through working with animals and on the land.
We offer young people the opportunity to work with a large range of animals, including horses, alpaca's, goats, sheep, rabbits, hens and ducks. You will have a full "hands-on" experience of working with the animals, including holding, grooming, cuddling and caring for them. We are especially good at helping young people regulate behaviours and emotions, working closely with schools to offer a comprehensive re-integration package.
Our aim is to support young people in eventually working in the farming or animal industries. All of our young people have successfully increased their school attendance from 0% to at least 90%. Most of our young people have secured employment once leaving us at aged 17 years and the rest have gone on to Further education or apprenticeship schemes.
