Fairhaven is a woodland garden comprising 130 acres of diverse habitats including ancient oak and beech, alder carr and our own broad. Our woodland is 100% organically managed using traditional techniques such as coppicing. As a result we have some fantastic wildlife – some of it quite rare! Leaving the classroom behind students can experience first-hand these various habitats that make a visit to Fairhaven so unique.
