Secondary school visits at the Garden

Oxford Botanic Garden is a world-class university botanic garden with outstanding collections from around the globe. Our sessions are not classroom-based and include a variety of hands-on activities. All sessions are designed to support the curriculum whilst promoting a love of the natural environment, to support and encourage future generations of botanists and conservationists. 

About school visits

We offer a range of sessions for Key Stage 3, 4, 5 and further education groups. Each session lasts between 90 minutes and 2 hours and has a maximum capacity of 35 students.

Please note that there is a charge for all education sessions. Our sessions fill up quickly, so book early to avoid disappointment.

Sessions do not include a general tour of the Garden, so please make sure you book extra time with us if you wish to explore afterwards.
