Forest School

Forest School supports learners’ personal development – connecting learners of all ages and abilities with each other and nature to support emotional, social and physical wellbeing. As facilitators we strive to provide a calm, positive and community centred environment for learning and creativity – supporting each individual to explore their own interests and talents, make, create, discover, enquire, engage with others and challenge themselves through hands-on experiences.

This leads to the development of more confident, independent learners who are more confortable challenging themselves and trying new things.

Forest School is ideally placed to support your school’s Personal Development programmes as well as enhance your curriculum provision and we will work with you to explore how best to support your school and its learners.
