Our base at Crystal Palace Park provides programmes in the farm, in an extensive suite of rooms and workshops in the Jubilee Stand and there are practical facilities for horticulture and arboriculture within the Park. The farm is also open for public visitors and is a popular local attraction.
The full-time courses (animal care, horticulture, countryside/environment studies and arboriculture) offered at this centre are particularly suitable for 16-18 year olds but older applicants are considered. Part-time programmes offered are suitable for all ages. In addition, we work in partnership with local schools to offer opportunities to 14 and 15 year olds for practical tasters and training in environmental studies, horticulture and animal care alongside their school GCSE programmes.
Do you have students interested in science, technology and business that would enjoy working outdoors, but are unsure of their options?
Horticulture could be the route for them.
Capel Manor College is offering a two hour horticulture focused taster sessions for students in years 11, 12 and 13.
Wednesdays and Thursdays starting 8, 9, 15, 16, 22, 23 May and 5, 6 June 10:30am–12:30pm or 1:30pm–3:30pm
