It is the Hampshire school that prides itself on outdoor education.

St Anthony’s Catholic Primary School and Pre-School, Primate Road, Fareham, has approximately 219 pupils and opened in 1991.

All of the children have the opportunity to visit the new farm school, allowing the pupils to learn about different animals needs, as well as develop their enthusiasm for nature.

Pupils also enjoy the forest school, which gives them the chance to toast marshmallows around a campfire, build dens and explore the wooden area.

The school also offers horse riding lessons to pupils in Year Three to give them the opportunity to take part in an activity they might not be able to access.

Katrina Straker, key stage three leader, said: “We have a school dog called Milly and the senior leadership team came up with the idea, because we read a lot of research about the benefits of school dogs.

“She has gone down so well and a lot of children who were nervous have become a lot more confident in themselves. She is also good for children who feel anxious.”

She added: “We believe that every child is really important and we push sports and music because it is about meeting the needs of all the children.”

Last year, St Anthony’s had their roof re-fitted due to it leaking and three years ago they had an extension to their hall.

The school will also be hosting their annual summer fair coming up on June 29.
