Forest School

Forest School

Forest School education is a highly specialised Scandinavian approach to outdoor learning. We have 3 Level 3 qualified Forest School leaders, one of which is a Specialist Teacher in this field, and 2 highly qualified Level 2 Forest School Leaders who all deliver this inspirational outdoor learning experience within our own forest school woodlands on site. Through our carefully planned, creative approach, your children become highly motivated to engage with the natural world, developing their confidence to communicate, lead their own learning, problem solve and become great team members. They are encouraged to take carefully managed risks that are appropriately challenging and become self-motivated to achieve, leading to a huge sense of pride and self-esteem that boosts their well-being. We are hugely proud of the environment that we offer and the quality of learning this encourages and parents are always welcome to engage in Forest School with their children to share this special experience together.

At the heart of every child is a unique genius and personality. What we should be doing is allowing the spark of that genius to catch fire, to burn brightly and shine
