Our main school event is Planting Day in the Park - where all the schools come together in People's Park and plant the Rose Garden.


  • Planting of the People’s Park (June)


Planting Day in the Park

The annual inter-school Planting in the Park competition, organised by Banbury Town Council, will see almost 350 pupils from 14 schools transform empty flower beds into gardens that bring their designs to life. .

Pupils armed with trowels and spades, use nearly 5000 plants as they turn the flower beds into colourful displays.

The event is part of Banbury in Bloom and encourages young people to develop an interest in nature and horticulture.
