We are delighted to be able to welcome schools to our Apiary Garden and Education Centre at Stoneleigh Park.  We are currently taking bookings for Spring 2023. 

With a focus on honeybees and beekeeping, we want to inspire children's natural curiosity in the world around them by offering free of charge educational visits in an inspirational learning environment.  We offer a range of fully supervised stimulating activities to fully engage children in learning beyond the classroom.

We have a flexible programme of fun indoor and outdoor learning activities linked to the KS2 National Curriculum and can tailor the content for the specific needs and abilities of a particular class or group.

We offer a relaxed, informal learning environment where children are encouraged to participate and ask questions to enhance their learning.  Please contact us to discuss our programme of activities in further detail and how we can support your class to meet their learning objectives.
