Browse our programmes

Engaging, interactive and hands-on, our programmes encourage students to embark on an inquiry-based learning journey, designed to meet curriculum targets across a wide range of subjects including science, maths, English, geography, art and design, technology and more.

Taught by our experienced Kew teachers, our programmes aim to give pupils opportunities to work scientifically in areas that are difficult or impossible to create in the school environment.

Our sessions run for 45-minutes or 90 minutes. Depending on the chosen topic, these take place at a variety of locations throughout the gardens, in the glasshouses, among the trees or in our learning spaces in Museum Number 1.
