Forest School

Children attend our on-site Forest School each week. Forest School encompasses a range of outdoor activities from arts and crafts, team building, wildlife conservation, imaginative activities, physical play, construction and natural exploration. Forest School encourages the development of the children’s emotional and physical development through outdoor play, activities and exploration in an outdoor classroom.



In each session, the children will participate in a variety of self-chosen activities with time for free play and exploration. Sessions are led by our qualified Forest School Leader.


When appropriate, groups will be taught to use a variety of tools. All activities are risk assessed and can be tailored to meet children’s requirements.

Having time regularly in nature is a wonderful chance for children to connect with the environment. All the activities take into account children’s different learning styles and together help to build self-esteem, communication skills, independence and self-confidence.
