Newham City Farm
Newham City Farm works closely with local schools to help children to learn about all aspects of wildlife, agriculture and plant life. From a self-guided tour to curriculum-specific workshops, the farm offers a fantastic resource for Outdoor Learning. Our workshops are very popular and give children hands-on experience of every aspect of farm life in a practical and fun setting.
Schools and community groups are always welcome to visit the farm - for which we will charge a minimal amount.

The Outdoor Classroom
Newham's parks and open spaces provide great opportunities for school children to explore the outdoors whilst learning about the environment, local heritage and culture. activeNewham can help your school to find something to match your learning needs - with activities for the different generations to explore together. For schools we offer a range of learning and activity options which can be adapted to suit any number of pupils, both primary and secondary. So, whether you want to organise a school or group visit, go on a park walk and talk or take a self-guided stroll along a tree trail, we have something to suit you.

School Swimming Lessons
We believe that swimming lessons should not only teach children the key skills they need to stay safe in the water, but should also be fun and inspire children to want to swim more often.
To support your school to achieve curriculum targets, activeNewham offers a variety of options for booking swimming lessons, including weekly 30, 45 or 60 minute lesson options, as well as intensive crash courses of two or three weeks. We are also pleased to offer training and workshops for school staff interested in supporting your children in the water. Follow this LINK for more information.
