We have fun working with our partner local churches.

The Secret Garden






St Clement’s and Bethany school was originally a convent. 50 years ago it was given by the nuns to be a school for children. In between the Infant and Junior school, there is a church, and a behind that, was a piece of wild land, where only nettles, brambles and creatures roamed free.


We thought it would be a great creative space for nature and spirituality, so with lots of help from St Clements’s church, local businesses and our families, work began on transforming the land. The Secret Garden is now an amazing space and provides the schools and the local community with both a place for peaceful reflection and also a learning space for both children and adults.
