Growing and Events

Working with our fantastic community gardener, Mrs Hiley, our children and families and the wider Sheffield community we have transformed our outdoor growing space, creating opportunities and growing delicious produce. 

We are always looking to invite new volunteers to support us in developing our green spaces.  If you would like to get involved, please contact Georgie Mitchell at 

We have so many exciting opportunities that take our families outdoors such as: planting, weeding, harvesting, learning and skill sharing.  We love using our fire pit and we have a fantastic outdoor classroom for all our learning needs. 

September 2023 saw our first Horticultural Show where families of the school were invited to a fun filled extravaganza filled with alpacas, llamas, bouncy castles, sweet treats, fresh produce that was grown by our families, external green-fingered organisations and more to celebrate the return to school and promote positive mental health and wellbeing.
