Absolutely great. Self led tours by staff. Staff were accommodating with the exhibition that was only 5 in at a time as they let in 6. Students were interested in the gardens and sculpture and explored the surroundings thoroughly with their cameras. (October 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 16683 )




A great location for a school trip. Can accommodate large numbers. met at gate by employees who take all your details to speed up the registration (October 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 16594 )




The day went smoothly and the organisation was excellent. All information was helpful and accurate. The students thoroughly enjoyed the day. (October 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 16543 )




Staff were friendly and knowledgeable and the sessions were well planned out. (October 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 16474 )

Tate Britain, not Kew Gardens! It is a great venue because reasonably quiet, particularly in the morning. (September 2019 - Primary - Post No: 16261 )

Kew Gardens did not have a water fountain and so students had to buy water! (September 2019 - Post No: 15973 )




Met all our requirements (September 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 15856 )

Fantastic day had by all. Students were surrounded with resources and produced a range of successful drawings from the day. (June 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 13871 )




Due to the excellent exhibition of glass sculptures, it was a suitable Art trip for year 9s who have been studying sculpture. It is hoped that they might take inspiration from this outing to use in future GCSE work. (June 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 13795 )

Amazing hands on learning about bee pollination, one of the best school trips we have been on for the level of interest and learning for the children. (June 2019 - Primary - Post No: 13405 )




Linked to habitats and biomes. Science and Humanities. The workshop was well pitched and reinforced classwork. Travel time is the only drawback. (June 2019 - Primary - Post No: 13364 )

Excellent day out for schools (June 2019 - Primary - Post No: 13134 )




We love visiting Kew Gardens and its a great location for purpose of microclimates. This year we had a mix up with the Kew staff regarding level of supervision-- this is something that has not come up in the past. We organise our pupils and give them a bit of space to explore, whilst taking regular registers, providing them with maps and out of bounds areas and allowing them to complete fieldwork within that time. Its put a damper on the visit that the Kew constabulary requires us to hand hold our students (this was the case with the KS1 pupils at Kew) so its made the visit a bit less special. I explained that we had been visiting Kew for years and this had never come up and even the first day of the trip it was no issue with Kew staff. We were applauded for how well behaved our pupils were in fact. Seems like its different staff members interpretation and we will need to reconsider our plan for the day in future visits. There were no incidences or poor behaviour to report. (June 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 12946 )

Great workshop, the children were engaged and learnt a lot about the rainforest. (May 2019 - Primary - Post No: 11574 )




Kew Gardens was a fantastic place to visit - lots to see and look at in relation to our plants/flowers/trees topic! We also did a workshop that the children really enjoyed. The member of staff leading it was very enthusiastic and excellent with the children. One thing that we did consider was that the workshop only covered the curriculum - so we had already taught it in school, whereas we expected it to be 'Amazing Plants' where we might've seen some more unusual things.

It was great, all of the girls really enjoyed learning and experiencing different climates and plant life. (March 2019 - Primary - Post No: 10385 )




Despite dreadful weather, the visit to Kew was brilliant. The children were fully engaged in the educational session and the hands on, practical element of this was fabulous! (March 2019 - Primary - Post No: 10332 )

Well organised microclimate studies using a variety of equipment and assessing validity of results Following the 'led sessions' students had ample time to enjoy the beauty of the gardens, completing a SHHS staff devised 'treasure hunt task' including visits to monuments and greenhouses (December 2018 - Secondary - Post No: 8313 )

All students enjoyed the day and got a lot out of the different experiences that Kew has to offer. Kews lunch room was locked when we got there which was a shame as it was pre booked. Other than that a successful day. (October 2018 - Secondary - Post No: 6788 )
