Meet the Animals

Here at Holtwood we keep a variety of animals including Chickens, Sheep, Pigs, Cattle and Rabbits and students are given the opportunity to take care of them.

Learn about Fresh Food Production

On the smallholding we grow a huge variety of fresh Fruit and Vegetables and we involve students in all aspects of growing and harvesting our fresh produce.

Help with Conservation work

As well as being home to a variety of domestic animals, the smallholding is abundant with wildlife, and we are very keen to help to preserve and diversify this life. We actively maintain the habitats that are essential to the birds and insects that make Holtwood their home.

At Holtwood we always work in small manageable groups which provide a great opportunity for students to interact with each other.

There is always ongoing building and construction projects at Holtwood, students have the opportunity to gain experience working with a variety of materials and tools in a safe and supervised environment.

Develop Countryside Skills

Based in the Dorset Countryside, we are in an ideal location for students to learn about country life and experience first hand what it is like to live and work around nature.
