What is Forest School?

Forest School is a child-centred, inspirational learning process, which offers opportunities for holistic growth through regular sessions. It is a long-term programme, supporting play, exploration and supported risk taking. It develops confidence and self-esteem through learner inspired, hands-on experiences in a natural setting.

Mr Farrell is our qualified Forest School practitioner. Throughout the year, he works outdoors with groups of children on a variety of interesting and exciting activities designed to support pupils in becoming resilient, independent and creative learners. The skills that children acquire in Forest School are transferable and underpin learning in the wider school environment.
