School Programmes

We offer an exciting menu of primary and secondary programmes for schools, colleges and youth groups. and can adapt these to fit particular curriculum or special needs.

We aim to bring a global perspective to the curriculum, especially in environmental and development issues and we have been awarded the Learning Outside the Classroom (LoTC) quality badge and the Growing Schools awards.

Guided tours

A summary of our programmes for adult learners can be found on the Adult Programmes page. We offer a number of botany courses to help you learn how to identify wild plants. The two main ones are an entry level course for complete beginners and a more advanced Plant ID Skills course.

We can also arrange guided tours of the Botanic Garden and we regularly host a number of independent art groups who hire our facilities. Our collaboration with the Attenborough Arts Centre provides a prograrmme of summer art courses.

Please see our events programme for our current available courses.

 

The Botanic Garden is also involved in community engagement educational programmes for both young people and adults. See Community Engagement.
