Longlands Care Farm is a registered charity providing alternative education provision.  It is based on a commercial farm.


Activities and 'lessons' are designed around individual learning needs and the capabilities and aptitude of the students.

Students are encouraged to enrol in one of the City & Guilds courses that we deliver and so as well as acquiring valuable vocational skills, they will leave us aged 16 or 18 with a nationally recognised qualification.


We currently offer C&G Land Based Studies to our students to award, certificate, and diploma level. Courses cover a wide range of subjects including animal care, agricultural skills, tractor driving and equine.  In addition, we offer modules in employability and personal development.
