Our Mission

“At Bonterre we recognise that for some children, conventional classroom based learning is not a setting in which they can thrive, particularly for those with educational, behavioural and emotional challenges.

We understand that we learn better through doing and that learning can take place in diverse ways. We understand that basic needs must be met before effective learning can take place and that trust and respect are paramount for a healthy learning environment.

Our fundamental aim and objective is to unlock potential, helping children to learn, share, discover and feel that they do have a future and a right to a purposeful place in society.”
Mike Stringer
Bonterre Founder and Director

Support us on Go Fund Me!

Donate to our current fundraising appeal to help us fund a new building on site. This would house a suitably sized kitchen to cater for our increasing numbers, and a warm space for all of our students to sit down together.

The building would also provide vital additional space to host more group events and activities for the local community, helping everyone to get out into the countryside and connect more with nature.
