Off-site Opportunities

Bright Futures pupils enjoy a range of off-site learning and leisure opportunities.

Jane’s Farm with its chickens, sheep, horses, poly-tunnels and plant growing beds is a focus for learning by our pupils who make weekly visits. Fresh eggs, fruit and vegetables are brought back to the school for use in cooking sessions.

Gardening is a popular activity and one of our near neighbours has kindly allowed school the  use of part of their garden, an area that is currently being developed by staff and pupils,using our own greenhouse to grow and bring on plants, herbs and vegetables.

Swimming at Hyde Leisure Pool is provided on Friday afternoons as pupils wind down at the end of a busy week.

Work experience is a feature of the curriculum for our older pupils.  Weekly placements include a Pet Supplies shop, a local butchers shop and Oldham Food Bank. Philip has been a volunteer at Oldham Foodbank for the past 4 years!

Cycling is offered on fine Tuesday afternoons during summer months using facilities at Alexandra Park in Oldham.

Fitness related activities are offered to pupils at two local gyms, led by school staff and a personal trainer.
