"At the Secret Garden, they treat each child as an individual. No-one ever feels left out or lost in a crowd." "The Secret Garden at Ottery is not just there for school holiday provision, they provide exciting and brilliant activities of an Environmental Education nature, helping your child to feel at one with the natural world!"
So what is this all about? Well, The Secret Garden at Ottery St Mary is a new kind of holiday workshop for children who love the outdoors and are keen to learn the secrets of nature and discover a wide range of exciting new environmentally themed pursuits.
Located in a real secret garden behind the ancient ecclesiastical walls of old Ottery St Mary, our privately managed educational centre offers a tranquil yet exciting and vibrant atmosphere for children to attend during school holidays. Within the intriguing walled garden of almost an acre, hidden from view yet positioned right in the middle of the town of Ottery St Mary, children can experience an inventive range of fun and exciting activities, from environmental education to team building and camp creation. Perhaps nature inspired art or outdoor cooking or baking. All pursuits are designed with the safety and security of your children foremost in our minds.
When the weather keeps us indoors your child will not miss out on any of the fun, with organised and educational activities held in the vast rooms of the historical house with its unique features and homely atmosphere.
As well as the plentiful outdoor and indoor facilities, we also have somewhere safe to drop off and pick up.
The Secret Garden at Ottery St Mary is run by Jules Corkhill, MA (Ed), an experienced teacher of over 30 years and a chaperone licensed by Devon LA, with experience chaperoning and tutoring for both ITV and BBC, and other production companies.
