Staunton is a unique site with a farm, the southcoast's largest tropical glasshouse, beautiful gardens and 1,000 acres of park land, that will enable you to teach the many areas of the curriculum all in a single location! The Education Programme is led by a dedicated team. Recognising that the programme will attract a wide range of differing needs, we are able to offer you a choice of options to suit your requirements.
