Outdoor Learning

  • Rocket Launching at Millfield

Just a short hop from Glastonbury Tor, a visit to our school will show you the extent of the space and freedom that our children enjoy. The walled and sensory gardens, Forest School and apple orchards are just some of the spaces our children can explore.

Many classes are taken outdoors; hunting for mini-beasts, growing produce in the garden, examining pond life and making dens. Our educational programme also takes in trips to nature reserves, stately homes, farms and other local places of interest.

The Forest School is a special place for our children, where they are encouraged to test boundaries and explore taking risks in the great outdoors. The messy mud kitchen is a favourite attraction and baking rolls in the bread oven, learning to cook over an open fire, peeling vegetables and sawing wood all add to their skills and growing sense of independence.

Being located on the same site as Millfield Prep, we take advantage of the extensive grounds; often taking walks of discovery through the fields, woods, orchard, wildlife areas and on down to see the ponies in the stables.

Pre-Prep is an Eco-School and we are proud of our Green Flag status, encouraging the children to reduce, re-use and re-cycle.
