The Royal Parks have relaunched our service for schools this year, offering the same exceptional standard of inspiring education in a flexible and Covid-secure way. Connect with nature and learn about the park environment, wildlife and heritage with interactive experiences online and hands-on practical activities in Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, St James’s Park and Brompton Cemetery.

We offer a wide range of safe, secure and fun learning experiences for all ages. Led by our expert team, you and your students will get to explore the park and learn all about the environments, wildlife and heritage that The Royal Parks look after in the heart of London.

Activities and courses include:

  • School visits to the parks
  • Unique live online sessions to support your teaching, both in the classroom and for remote learning
  • Comprehensive and easy to use downloadable teaching resource packs
