McQueens Flower School


We are delighted to announce the McQueens International Flower School will reopen in London on 3rd August with a revised timetable and socially-distanced learning. The London school closed its doors in March but now reopens, following UK Government advice, with a robust plan in place to enable smaller groups of students to return in a safe and comfortable manner.

Measures taken include hand-sanitising stations, a one-way system throughout the building, a reduced number of students per class, and teaching and student welfare spaces have been reconfigured to maintain adequate distance between students and tutors. Full details of the measures taken can be found here.

Students can once again join our internationally-respected four-week Vocational Course or any of its individual one-week modules: Introduction to Flowers, Events & Corporate Design, Wedding Flowers, or Advanced Installations. We can’t wait to warmly welcome students back to the school where our expert tutors are ready to guide you in developing your floristry skills and career..
