Beekeeping Club

Beekeeping club meets primarily during the summer term, when the weather is warm enough to inspect our two hives.  It is open to boys from all year groups who want to study the fascinating lifecycle of the honey bee and develop their skills in beekeeping. Boys learn about hive management which includes identifying the queen, looking for eggs and brood and ensuring the hives have sufficient food reserves.

We are hoping to collect a surplus of honey which we can then extract to produce our own, Hampton Honey.
