Set in the grounds of historic Gossington Hall in the beautiful Gloucestershire countryside we are an independent design school offering quality learning in a supportive and friendly atmosphere across a wide range of courses. We are supported by Bridgwater & Taunton College for our One Year Diploma in Garden Design and our carefully selected tutors are industry experts.
Some professional courses are taught by Caroline Tatham, our school Principal who is an experienced, qualified lecturer and award winning, practising garden designer. Caroline has built strong links between the school and the garden design industry. We also offer more leisure based learning such as on many of our popular one day courses.
Creativity is at the heart of everything we do and we welcome those with no previous experience. Support and guidance is offered throughout your professional course and we even guide you through the challenges of setting up your own business.
Past students have won several RHS medals including a gold and Best in Show for the Festival Garden category at The RHS Malvern Spring Festival and gold at the 2017 RHS Hampton Court Flower Show.
Our day courses come with delicious catering for a relaxed and informative experience. The day courses make great gifts and gift vouchers & presentation cards are available.
