Focus On : Forest School

26th May 2023

You might not even know it’s there, but nestled behind the staff carpark you will find our Ecology Area; a beautiful, large, natural learning space which is home to our Forest School, and for other curriculum use through the year such as Art, Science and Geography.

Forest School takes place one afternoon a week for groups of selected Year 7s. Run by qualified Forest School practitioners, it offers a child-centred inspirational learning process that provides opportunities for holistic growth through regular sessions.

Our Forest School has been running for nearly 20 years and over the last seven we have been offering 2 hour weekly sessions with each group spending one whole term on a programme of forest school activities.

Activities such as pond-dipping, fire lighting, wood carving and shelter building all support the main curriculum and help to develop self-esteem and confidence.
