Alternative education

Lawrence Weston Community Farm provides a safe, friendly and stimulating environment in the community for children and young people to learn. Regular weekly Alternative Education placements provide the opportunity to get involved in all aspects of farm life. For young people who respond to learning outside of the classroom, these placements help to build confidence and social skills. Please enquire for more details.
