We are excited to share with you our unique educational setting at the Walled Garden. Working with Plumpton College, we are using this accessible and diverse venue to provide high-quality educational experiences for secondary and primary school students.
For the local school community, we have provided a range of curriculum-based workshops focusing on the relevancy of the school curriculum in horticulture, the outdoors and the garden. This also brings a fantastic opportunity to aid student well-being. As a subsidiary of Plumpton College, One Garden Brighton is focused on providing high-quality education to pupils in a range of cross-curricular sessions. We aim to promote an interest in outdoor learning and the history and heritage of the local area.
By drawing on the past, involving the current and looking to developments in and for the future a diverse range of workshops themes are available, from: technology in the sector to the importance of our natural resources and climate change. Sessions focus on discovery and team work. Some sessions allow for pre and post activities, extending the learnings.
The sessions at the Walled Garden are primarily aimed at KS3, and we can also accommodate KS4. There is an opportunity for KS2 to visit and experience One Garden Brighton, however more of an approach of bringing a taste of the Walled Garden into KS2 schools to be led by the schools themselves.
For primary school provision we are proud to work with Schools Without Walls who specialise in high quality learning outside of the classroom for all, offering a wide range of creative learning opportunities to connect with nature, be more active, be creative and have fun. they offer activity days for EYFS up to KS2 using the beautiful walled garden and surrounding woodland.ools themselves. For more info please see contact details below.
We cover water capture, climate change, how gardens grow and how sustainable horticulture is the future.
