http://www.wishlearning.com/

W.I.S.H. - Whitbourne Independent School and Hub -  is a school with a big heart for the community and a connection with nature.  Large amounts of time are spent outside, in and around Whitbourne: in the forest, on the allotment, in an outdoor classroom, at Longlands Farm. Formal learning is embedded in a natural context and dovetailed with the outdoor space. We pride ourselves in allowing children space to be children, express themselves, reflect on their learning and follow their interests.  This school is strongly supported by the community of Whitbourne, through funding, volunteers and project partnerships, such as Whitbourne Village Shop.
