St Margaret’s C of E Junior School


A group of keen gardeners regularly join Mr Collier and Miss Fenner to learn new skills and try their hand at a bit of gardening around the school site.


We have been lucky enough to have had a team from JLR as well as other helpful volunteers in school to help construct an area of raised beds for us to grow a range of flowers and produce.


As a relatively new venture, we are just beginning to see how rewarding are efforts can be. Please see below for a few examples of some of the produce we have grown already this year. The children were able to harvest and taste the fruits of their hard work. We look forward to developing our ‘growing calendar’ in the years to come!

Planting trees to commemorate the Queen's Jubilee - April 2022


Some of our Year 3 and 4 gardeners helped the local rotary club to plant a tree as part of the Queen's Green Canopy. This is part of the Queen's Jubilee celebrations. You can follow this link to find a map of all the trees planted to create this canopy.

Visitor from Shakespeare's Birthplace Trust

The children from gardening club were visited by the head gardener at Shakespeare's Birthplace Trust in Stratford Upon Avon. The children had a lovely talk about the possibilities of gardening and what a career in gardening might look like. They then participated in a number of activities, all of which were provided by SBT. The children thoroughly enjoyed the time spent with the visitors and we are exploring possibilities to visit SBT in the future.
