Alternative Curriculum Opportunities

At Bushey Meads we are proud to offer an inclusive curriculum providing all of our students the opportunity to succeed.

Some of our students attend weekly visits to courses off site such as fishing, cooking, football, working on the farm etc.

Our students are taught vocational skills in small groups at various destinations locally.

Jesse chose to try some fishing. This course is run at Cassiobury Farm fishery in Croxley.

He was really pleased to catch a Bream as you can see, but wasn’t too keen on holding it as they can be quite slimy. The teachers showed Jesse an easy way to hold the Bream which is quite safe for this type of fish apparently and he was happy with that.

This type of pursuit is great for mental health and is a great way to relax by spending time in nature. It also teaches our students patience as you don’t always catch something.

Well done Jesse.
