Discover Nature Outside the Classroom with The Royal Parks

Bring learning to life in our outdoor classroom and ‘discovery’ rooms!

As the autumnal leaves start to fall and the winter chill approaches, there’s still plenty to do outside! We have lots of National Curriculum mapped sessions for all ages to discover for all seasons and weather, from winter art to learning new ID skills.

    Our winter art sessions run by our skilled education team encourage primary-aged children to get creative with nature, using brightly coloured autumnal leaves and twigs to create their own wild masterpiece.  Secondary-aged children can explore our pond or meadow sites to identify organisms, and get their hands on fieldwork equipment to collect fascinating invertebrate samples.

    All our sessions are based in The Royal Parks Foundation Education Centre, a unique, eco-friendly building nestled in an acre of enclosed grounds in the heart of Hyde Park, London. We have two bright and airy 'discovery' rooms that can host up to 30 students each and our grounds include a pond, minibeast areas and sensory planting.

    Our central London location means that we are easily accessible by public transport and we offer a personal booking service, to help you plan your trip. You also have the opportunity for a pre-visit if you wish and we provide risk assessments.

    Please get in touch for more information and details of the various sessions we offer.

    Learning outside the classroom can have a transformational effect on your students’ education and personal development. With The Royal Parks Foundation’s skilled education team and fantastic facilities, your students will be inspired with broad experiences that prepare them for academic success.
