The registered office address is : Eagle house, 25 Severn Street, Welshpool, Powys, SY21 7AD


Bettws is situated 5 miles from Newtown and 10 miles from Welshpool, close to the Shropshire border.  It is accessed via the main road B4389


We also have a Woodland Outdoor Learning Site and  a Lifehouse Link Farm, both situated within 3 miles from the school.  These play an important role in our curriculum and activities, the Woodland, providing an opportunity for learning in a completely different way to the classroom setting.


The farm provides opportunities for our students to be involved in the day to day running of a REAL rural business.  The farm has a large dairy unit, a small flock of sheep and an equine yard.  With a south-facing outlook across the Severn valley, the farm covers over 500 acres. It has woodland, water courses and pasture land that we are able to use for project work.

In the larger picture, we also take advantage of living in one of the most beautiful parts of Great Britain, steeped in history and culture.  All our students take part in visits and trips that stimulate and cultivate an interest in our locality.  We have strong links in the immediate and wider community, that give us access to a variety of land use.
