Forest School is an educational ethos that recognises each child as both unique and competent. It provides child-centered holistic learning in an outdoor environment for 'children' of all ages.
Through real life first hand experiences of play, exploration, experimentation and social interactions students are encouraged to take responsibility for their learning both during and away from Forest School. Unlike regular didactic classroom teaching Forest School places the student central to their experience, providing them with the freedom to follow their interests and learn at their own pace alongside our specialised Forest School Leader.
A relatively new approach to learning in the United Kingdom, Forest School has been functioning on these shores since as recently as 1995. Forest Schools originated in Scandinavia, an area rated with the best education system, the happiest people and the greatest sense of well-being in the entire world. Many people claim the success is a result of the education system (formal classroom education is replaced with Forest School until age 7) further promoting the use of Forest School around the world.
