Shield Tree Wood is located in Thornsett, near New Mills, HIGH PEAK and offers a private, tranquil, calming woodland to compliment your school’s personal development, inclusion and outdoor learning programmes.  With robust and reviewed COVID-19 policies in place we are able to offer the following services and programmes to local schools:

We also pride ourselves on our flexible approach so we have the options to run our sessions and programmes at your school grounds or within our private basecamp woodland Shield Tree Wood. At BEING Outdoors CIC we connect children and young people with nature and each other to build social, emotional and physical well-being.  We believe that giving them time and space in an outdoor setting is key to building the skills needed for their long-term well-being and mental health. We will support all our learners to build confidence, become resourceful team players and nurture curious minds using the Ethos of Forest Schools. We have a range of services to suit your needs.  Click on the icons below to find out more….
