Here at Franklin we aim to equip our pupils with the tools not just to survive but to thrive in the modern dynamic world in which we find ourselves. We strongly believe in the positive benefits of an outdoor curriculum and the potential that it has to develop our pupils socially, emotionally and academically. During the academic year, all pupils sow and grow crops for consumption and engage in outdoor activities that enhance their understanding of the world around them and their place in it. Furthermore, children are taught to recognise the impact that they can have on their local environment and the world at large, both as an individual and as a group.
