Harcourt Arboretum is just six miles south of Oxford. Its 130 acres host a range of habitats, including woods and a wildflower meadow. A visit to the Arboretum is an ideal opportunity for children to engage with the natural environment. Our sessions include a variety of hands-on activities, such as arts and crafts, games, challenges and group discussions.
About school visits
The Arboretum offers a range of sessions to enhance the curricula for Foundation Stage and Key Stages 1 and 2. Sessions for nursery groups are also available. Please see 'nursery groups' below for more information.
Each session runs for between 90 minutes and two hours, (usually 10am-12) and has a maximum capacity of 35 children. If you would like to bring more children on one day, we could for example run one morning session 10am-12 and then another 12.30-2.30pm, but you will be charged twice.
Please note that there is a charge for all education sessions. Our sessions fill up quickly, so book early to avoid disappointment.
