What we do

Grow to School works in your school grounds delivering all the fun, excitement and embedded learning of a school trip at a fraction of the cost. We work with entire classes and their teaching and support staff or with smaller nurture groups across EYFS and Key stages 1& 2. All sessions link outdoor learning and food growing to the new curriculum.

Grow in residence

Grow to school offers a yearlong residency providing frequent, continuous and progressive outdoor learning and grounds development.

Grow in residence is a bespoke package of sessions, support and resources. We can, therefore, tailor a project to combine outdoor learning with growing food and managing your grounds. For further information click here.

Over the course of a year schools benefit from:

  • Development of school grounds to enhance an outdoor learning and food growing curriculum
  • Grow led sessions deliver staff training and provide planning that can be used again & again
  • Children develop lifelong learning skills academically, socially and practically
  • Grow led activities that bring subjects to life – living history, applied maths, experimental science and practical D&T
