The best classroom and the richest cupboard is roofed only by the sky.
Forest Schools offers an all-inclusive, multi-sensory, inspirational opportunity for children to learn in a holistic hands-on environment, where they connect with nature and their peers, unwittingly encompassing all aspects of their development through play. Confidence and self-esteem are bolstered by accomplishing small achievable tasks, fostering their intrinsic skills to meet their unique and special potential.
Shared thinking, independent thought; an abundance of ideas whizzing through the forest. Building houses, building relationships. Making fires, making friends. Chivvying the frustrated to be creative and the same in return. Bang, chop, rustle ……… silence. More, less, how big, how small, guess, assess ……. review and reflect; relax and breathe. Could learning be any more fun?

We have been so impressed at how the school encourage a real love of learning and give the children the independence to grow.
