“At Capel Manor College we are passionate about supporting London’s natural environment and offering opportunities to students to gain the best possible skills and experience and move into rewarding land-based careers. These include working with animals, wildlife, conservation and biodiversity, protecting and improving London’s trees and woodlands, designing and enhancing our green spaces and gardens, creating first-class floristry and events, helping us adapt to climate change and sustainably growing high-quality food for our futures.
“We are truly excited by the inclusion of the Mottingham Campus in our existing family of campuses across Greater London. We look forward to working with the staff and the students, as well as the local community and wider stakeholders, on the development of the Mottingham Campus. Together we will shape a future for people passionate about nature, the natural environment and London.”
