Forest School


Forest School is suitable for everyone.

Aims of Forest School

  • to build self-confidence, self-esteem and independence skills

  • to raise awareness and appreciation of the natural environment

    What is Forest School?

  • Forest School is a long-term process of regular sessions, rather than a one-off or infrequent visits; the cycle of planning, observation, adaptation review links at each session.

  • Forest School takes place in a woodland or natural environment to support the development of a relationship between the learner and the natural world.

  • Forest School uses a range of learner-centred processes to create a community for being, development and learning.

  • Forest School aims to promote the holistic development of all those involved, fostering resilient, confident, independent and creative learners.

    Forest School offers learners the opportunity to take supported risks appropriate to the environment and to themselves.
