Forest Schools

In partnership with Lakes College we are proud to announce that we are now a Forest School. 


Forest School is an inspirational process, that offers ALL learners regular opportunities to achieve and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experiences in a woodland or natural environment with trees.

Forest School is a specialised learning approach that sits within and compliments the wider context of outdoor and woodland education.


All of the children that have taken part have had an amazing experience. Forest School has given them the opportunities to develop crucial learning behaviours in a new and exciting setting.
