Our programmes & sessions
We offer four kinds of sessions which we match to the needs of each individual looking to come to Stable and Wild: Peer Assisted Learning , 1-1, Princes Trust and virtual. Sessions run from our green and rural site on the Bedfordshire/Buckinghamshire border where young people can feel free from the constraints of traditional educational settings or other environments.
All our sessions involve the use of animals, both big and small including horses, donkeys, goats, sheep, chickens, ducks, rabbits, pigs and guinea pigs. We encourage the young people to explore their relationships and feelings through work with these animals.
Uniquely, thanks to our team's outdoor learning and forest school experience, additionally we are able to enhance our sessions with nature-led activities which encourage adventure, discovery, exploration and a greater understanding of the world around us.
Our location is perfect in that we have direct access to a farm, pastureland and woodland and are able to offer each learner a diverse and stimulating sensory experience.

From September 2023, we are pleased to be offering the Princes Trust Achieve Programme, enabling young people to achieve a recognised Employability Qualification from the age of 11.
This will help to prepare them for further study or employment.
“I think J has really enjoyed his time [at Stable & Wild]. He’s enjoyed being able to spend time outdoors, with animals, and be away from the formal school setting. I know he really liked spending time with the animals and we all had a good laugh when he came home and did his impression of Jack the donkey. I think it's been invaluable for him to have some space to do something different and in a small group setting. I am pretty sure he'll miss it once he stops going.
Thanks for having him on the programme.”
