Forest School Programme

Forest School encourages the development of the children’s emotional and physical development through outdoor play, activities and exploration in a woodland classroom.

Spending time in a wood on a regular basis is a wonderful chance for children to connect with nature. All the activities take into account learning styles and schemas. The programme helps to build self esteem, communication skills, independence and self confidence.

Teachers' Testimonials

"We all thoroughly enjoyed our visits to the Forest School and the children gained so much from these visits. Both Trevor and Mathew were incredibly supportive of our children's needs and were calm, friendly and led the sessions exceptionally well. They made a real effort to get to know the children and very quickly learned their names and their characters! The pace of the sessions were good and the children were fully engaged and very enthusiastic!"

The sessions were all very well-planned and had clear objectives, which were met. Thank you so much for all your work. I look forward to returning again with my new class next year!

"The children adored every minute with Trevor - they spent all week talking about what they had learnt and we had queues of parents wanting to come and help. Thank you to all the team. We cannot wait to do it again."
