What is Forest School?

Forest School is best described as an outdoor classroom in a woodland setting. The sessions, led by our experienced Forest School Leader, provide opportunities for our pupils to build their confidence and self-esteem through a mixture of child-led and structured activities.

Through solving problems and taking measured risks in a safe environment, pupils develop their resilience and ability to overcome challenges both independently and as part of a team.

We aim to foster a love and respect for the natural world through stimulating natural learning experiences, inspiring children to value biodiversity and develop a strong understanding of how to promote environmental sustainability.

“Forest School is a child-centred inspirational learning process, that offers opportunities for holistic growth through regular sessions. It is a long-term program that supports play, exploration and supported risk taking. It develops confidence and self-esteem thcrough learner inspired, hands-on experiences in a natural setting.” Forest School Association
