Here at Brockwell Park Community Greenhouses we have considerable experience of running activities for students from a variety of educational settings from early years providers to secondary schools. Learning outside enhances every stage of the national curriculum and our setting is one big outdoor classroom. With a mud play kitchen, an orchard, wildlife pond, herb garden, bee hives, vegetable gardens, cob oven, two big greenhouses and now our indoor facility – Brockwell Barn – we can offer a unique and varied learning experience – and all in the centre of beautiful Brockwell Park.

We are open to visits from children’s groups on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays during term-time.

 Our experienced educators deliver:

  • curriculum linked hands-on sessions
  • preschool activities
  • regular sessions for special needs groups
  • activities for home schoolers

All are designed to make the most of our beautiful outdoor setting with the option of using Brockwell Barn to shelter from the weather.


For nurseries, nursery schools, children’s centres, groups of childminders and parents of pre-school children we run seasonally-themed sessions designed to broaden understanding of the natural world through play. Please check out our early years offer on our session details page for more information.

Primary Schools

There is no topic or aspect of the national curriculum that cannot be enhanced by abandoning the classroom for a morning! Our gardens provide a whole range of learning opportunities linked to plants, living things and their habitats, healthy eating and the environment.  For further details of our programme for EYFS, KS1 and KS2 pupils, including rates, please visit our session details page.

Secondary Schools

At KS3 and above, things get even more interesting. Activities can range from art projects, scientific studies on plants, invertebrates or the relationship between the two , design and technology challenges. Intrigued? Follow this link to secondary schools  and to discover more.
