Without doubt one of the favourite activities of the younger children is working with Liz in the garden. Not only does Liz make the surroundings beautiful for us all but she stimulates a whole generation of young “Titchmarshes”.

Every available bit of space is currently under cultivation of some sort.

The large tree in shot below is a rare Ginkgo tree with ancient links to China and Japan. Its leaves are quite unique and worthy of close scrutiny. He/she it  (?) can be found standing guard outside the Bursar’s office. The other notable feature of the tree is how insect and disease resistant it is.

The second tree in shot is to be found in the middle of the lawn. It’s an old walnut tree. Not sure how this ties in with our “nut free” policy in school!
