Welcome to Priestley Farm

In the heart of the Bedfordshire countryside on a large working farm lies our new and exciting Seeds of Change Centre.

We have recently moved to new premises at Priestley Farm where we anticipate there will be lots of new opportunities for our students. Working from our brand new fully-kitted out Cabin, the students have been hard at work giving it a homely “Seeds of Change” touch; installing flower planters outside the cabin and decorating the walls with their photography and art skills.

Out on the yard our young people have been getting to know the new friendly (and furry!) faces, and we are lucky enough to have access to a small animal unit housing pigs, goats, chickens, geese, rabbits and guinea pigs. This is a great addition to the facilities; providing an additional therapeutic environment for our students to engage and learn.

Programmes we offer from Priestley Farm:

  • One to One for KS1 and KS2 building confidence, understanding the need for boundaries, communication, and supporting the transition back into mainstream/secondary school
  • One to One Re-engagement and Personal Development
  • Specialist KS2/3 Re-engagement Programme

We work with a range of referring bodies in Luton and Bedfordshire including:

Our coaches are friendly and approachable and have worked with young people from many backgrounds. All our work is tailored to meet the client's individual needs and goals, and we work in close conjunction with referring bodies to ensure that targets are achievable and regularly reviewed.
