“He has made everything beautiful in its time” is a fitting reflection with respect to all gardens and grounds, so what makes The River School (TRS) estate so beautiful and distinctive? Like every place it is the “back story” of its existence that has shaped it into what it is today. Please see the section below (Brief history of the estate) for more details.


The River School has owned and run the estate since 1985 and because of the Christian ethos, it has always put a high premium on valuing "Creation" within our curriculum. So much new work has been carried out over the last three years to renovate the gardens that some have dubbed it, “Worcester’s Heligan”. The story of its development has been captured in photos, alongside our ongoing strategy to develop our Forest School and Greenhouse areas.


Why not visit us? We are now a part of the National Garden Scheme (NGS) holding Open Days twice a year – on 27th April 2019 and again on 3rd August  between 10.30am and 3.30pm.
