What does a snowdrop look like? 

Which plants support bees?

How tall can an oak tree grow?

You may have heard these questions and more from your pupils, and they’ll be able to discover the answers in our special garden.

Evenley Wood Garden provide a safe haven and all our children had a wonderful time. The outdoor classroom is the perfect base and the staff could not have been more helpful or supportive before and during our visit. Thoroughly recommended as an excellent local resource to meet the outdoor learning emphasis of the curriculum.

As we are unable to provide a special teaching program, it’s up to the teachers to be creative. But this self-guided option allows total flexibility, and it’s a good opportunity to create additional activities that relate to age, curriculum, and classroom.

In addition to allowing access to our garden, we can offer laminated maps, and lunch may be arranged on our Pavilion. Our wonderful staff will also be on hand to offer assistance and answer any questions teachers or pupils may have.
