About Us

The Covent Garden Academy of Flowers is one of the country’s leading flower design schools. The Academy brings the colour and magic of flowers back to Covent Garden and draws upon its unique placement to ensure that, like the flowers themselves, students flourish whilst studying here.

Over these last four years, our Principal Gillian Wheeler has proudly watched a stream of students pursue new careers, launching successful floral companies of their own.

The Academy’s courses are varied in content and duration, yet all aim to bring flowers and design together in an educational way.
Our one day and evening courses work on a variety of themes and seasonal subjects. Our longer courses, on the other hand, explore all the tried and tested techniques, alongside innovative ideas that will surprise and delight. Our school is accredited by the British Accreditation Council (BAC).

The Academy is much more than just a school, however, for while one team teaches, the other works tirelessly as part of our Events and Weddings arm. We are committed to our hotel contracts, as well as the charities we support for whom we enjoy crafting spectacular creations whatever the occasion. We are also a Wedding Florist and are proud of the bespoke service we provide couples who are looking for their very own little bit of unique magic.
