About Forest School – Exploration and Discovery

Our long-established Forest School, set in our platinum award-winning woodlands, provides our Nursery, Prep School and lower Senior School pupils with the freedom to enjoy the natural environment and to discover themselves. Free to climb and swing from trees, and to make dens, camp-fires and life-long friends within a consistently risk assessed area, our young people get to enjoy every minute; rain or shine.

Key to our long term investment in our Forest School is the opportunity for our pupils to learn things that are not taught and tested in most Schools; but are increasingly essential in next generation careers. Problem solving skills, agility, self-confidence, tenacity and resilience are developed through a combination of free play and structured challenges. Moreover, as generations of children are ever more subjected to challenges presented by online activity and social media, both the physical and wellbeing advantages of time spent in our Forrest School are plain for all to see. By the end of Year 8, everyone is ready to embrace all that the Duke of Edinburgh Awards have to offer as our students progress through Years 9, 10, 11 and beyond.
