Land and Environment Academy

When you study at our Kirkley Hall campus, you will have extensive grounds as your classroom.

Our gardens exceed four hectares and include the National Fagus (Beech Tree) Collection, a Victorian walled garden, a large collection of unusual trees, shrubs, herbaceous and ornamental borders, many cultivars, sunken and woodland gardens and 1,330sqm of amenity and commercial greenhouses.

We have recently introduced a course in floristry which can be studied on a full time or part time basis. We have a brand new dedicated garden studio with high specification computers and the latest CAD design software where our budding landscape gardeners can get the very best in design practice.

If you want to learn technical and creative skills in a variety of areas from plant propagation to garden design then Kirkley Hall is the place for you.

We also offer Apprenticeships and Advanced Apprenticeships in Horticulture. Contact advice.centre@northland.ac.uk or 01670 841 200 for more details.
