Please note: A limited selection of our standard primary programmes are available for the summer term of 2021.

At the Botanic Garden the glasshouses are currently closed. If you are interested in programmes that usually use the glasshouses please contact us by email for recommendations of alternative activities. 

Inside toilets are available from 4th May at the Botanic Garden and Attenborough Arboretum for groups who book taught activities / rooms. The public toilets at the Botanic Garden open on 21st June 2021.


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.
