KS4 option - Horticulture
Subject Leader: Mr Jones and Miss Harris
Horticulture offers students the opportunity to learn and demonstrate the skills and techniques in gardening. Pupils work towards the ASDAN short course in Gardening. This includes choices of:-
- Planting in the garden
- Growing food on an allotment.
- Working undercover
- Wildlife in the garden
- Construction in the garden
Gardening promotes a healthier lifestyle exercise and can have a positive impact on your mental health and wellbeing.
Horticulture provides opportunities to develop fine and gross motor skills. Also, developing new skills or hobbies can improve self-esteem and confidence. Being outdoors and doing something you enjoy can help with self-regulation.
