Mount Pleasant School Farm is an educational facility. It is on the southern edge of the city of Birmingham (on Icknield Street), situated within the site of a working dairy farm. The farm has cattle, sheep, pigs & chickens.
Peter Charles the farmer lives at the dairy farm. Nina Hatch, an experienced OLS teacher, organises a full day of educational activities for every school visit.
This is real-life learning outside the classroom. A day at the farm provides a variety of ‘hands on’ experiences linking where our food comes from to the school curriculum

Excellent venue for a trip for Reception pupils. Only one class visits at a time so sole use of facilities. A working farm with no gimmicks - playgrounds or gift shop. Waterproofs and wellington boots provided, classroom facilities, range of animals to observe. Brilliant facilitator with vast experience and knowledge. A great day out of the classroom.

We took reception pupils to Mount Pleasant Farm for the day. It was a great day out, the pupils learnt so much. It did not take use long to get there and when we arrived, Miss Hatch was ready for us. The classroom was a great space for learning, as well as a place for lunch. Pupils were provided with raincoats and wellington boots. Pupils had the opportunity to feed the chickens, sheep and cows. It was a great day out.
