What is forest school? 

Forest School is happy, healthy learning in a natural setting. Forest School promotes success and achievement through personalised learning in an inclusive outdoor classroom. It offers opportunities for individuals to flourish and for their true potential to shine through with a focus on well-being, emotional development, social interaction and practical skills. It promotes success and achievement through child-led learning in an inclusive outdoor classroom where all children can succeed.

Forest School is led by  trained Forest School Practitioners who are committed to delivering a high quality programme, putting into practise their knowledge of pedagogy, education and practical skills.
