Transferable Skills Training is situated on a hundred and twenty-four-acre farm. Merryhue Farm has been farmed in an environmentally sensitive way for over sixty years and as such boosts a hugely diverse range of habitats which include semi ancient woodlands, meadow lands, heathland willow carr and marshland.
As a result of having such a rich diversity of habitat, Merryhue has a wide range of wildlife such as otters, fallow, red and sika deer, kingfishers, barn owls and badgers, all of whom have found sanctuary on the farm.
Merryhue is a working farm with a wide variety of livestock and poultry including alpacas, pigs, ducks, geese, chickens and quail.
Transferable Skills Training has a number of dedicated teaching workshop, including a fully equipped carpentry workshop at the top of the farm, where students can learn the basics of woodwork.
We have a newly refurbished room at the bottom of Merryhue Farm for our special educational needs students. It has its own kitchen, toilet facilities and sitting area. It's a cosy, calming space where students can carry out a range of fun and eductional activities.
At the bottom of the farm, we have a space dedicated to providing students with tools aiding in Contruction. Tasks involved cement mixing, bricklaying, and more!
