A new home for our animals

Animal care is a popular subject at school, and we’ve recently made some upgrades to our animals’ homes.

The animals have all settled in and are now sharing their new space together. This makes the cleaning and maintenance far easier for all. Mrs Falconer is so happy and loves the new shed.

We’ve also recently adopted a new tortoise called Alar. Alar will be joining Timothy in his enclosure very soon. We would like to say a massive thank you to our site manager Angus and his apprentice Jordan for all their hard work. The new home is amazing; it’s a wonderful environment for the animals, and will enhance our students’ learning.

Students develop very high levels of positive behaviour and feel extremely safe. They are very considerate, very respectful and caring of others and highly positive about learning.
