Event Details

Prisoners’ Education Trust (PET) is delighted to announce that we have been chosen as one of three charities to benefit from the annual garden open days at Frogmore House and Garden, Windsor, on Thursday 7th June. Formerly a royal residence and set within Windsor Castle's private Home Park, Frogmore House and Garden welcomes visitors for three days every summer, with all proceeds going to the chosen charities.

The gardens at Frogmore House have been an enduring attraction for monarchs and their families since the house was bought for Queen Charlotte by her husband George III. The historic plantings, including tulip trees and redwoods, along with Queen Victoria’s Tea House, remain key features of the garden today.

Frogmore's garden and lake are largely the creation of Queen Charlotte, the house's first royal resident. The Queen had a passionate interest in botany and introduced over 4,000 trees and shrubs to create a picturesque landscape. In the last century, the garden was redesigned by Queen Mary and enhanced for Her Majesty The Queen's Silver Jubilee.

Join us for what is sure to be a fantastic day at the tranquil Frogmore gardens, about a mile from Windsor Castle. Frogmore House has been used as a royal retreat for more than 300 years, and although no longer a royal residence, is frequently used by the Royal Family for private entertaining. 

To sign up for this event, simply complete the Eventbrite form here.

Prisoners' Education Trust

Prisoners' Education Trust (PET) is a charity working across every prison in England and Wales to help people in prison achieve their potential through learning. PET provides courses in levels and subjects not usually available in prison, including GCSEs, A-levels, and Open University courses, as well as courses in subjects as diverse as Farming Management and Personal Fitness Training. Since our foundation in 1989, PET has helped thousands of men and women in prison transform their lives through education, and build better futures for their families and communities.

Each year PET awards funding for around 3,000 courses and arts materials. PET offers over 250 different courses, all of which are studied through distance learning. PET’s Policy and Research Team works to increase understanding of the benefits of education, including a positive impact on employment prospects, increased well being, and the creation of more positive prison cultures.

Research by the Ministry of Justice's has shown that people who receive a PET course in prison are up to 25% less likely to reoffend compared to a matched control group.

Rod Clark, Chief Executive, Prisoners’ Education Trust.

“We are really delighted that Prisoners’ Education Trust has been offered the rare opportunity to host an open day at Frogmore Gardens. As we approach our 30th birthday, this is a golden time to share our work and vision with old and new supporters alike. By joining us at Frogmore Gardens, you’ll be helping to plant seeds of hope in places that can often feel hopeless; equipping people with the skills and qualifications they need to break the cycle of crime and build better lives in our communities.”
