"Pupils are proud of their school. Their good behaviour and positive attitudes make a strong contribution to their success."

RSPB Youth Leaders: Miss Tansley & Mrs Purser
The Green Team
Mackie Hill are committed to providing excellent outdoor learning. We are promoting outdoor learning in all areas of the curriculum and our school is hoping to become a Forest School in the near future so we can further develop out outdoor learning environment.
Our RSPB Wildlife Explorers afterschool club is always extremely popular. Ranging from ages 5-11 the children complete nature surveys, correspond with the RSPB, maintain the gardens and learn all about the flora and fauna in and around our school grounds.
More recently we have redeveloped our school allotment and the children have grown radish, peas, onions, potatoes, rhubarb, strawberries, herbs and dwarf and broad beans. The Fabulous Foxes created spicy potato skins from our fresh potatoes and shared them with the Green Team. The Green Team then prepared fresh and fried red and white onions to complete a 'blind' taste test which we then shared with parents. We also had a bountiful harvest of peas, which we shared with the entire school!
