Forest School for Older Children
We provide highly effective intervention and support to secondary schools and run an amazing holiday club for ages 9+. We exist to help young people create unforgettably good memories, provide incredible free play opportunities, and introduce them to the wonder of the great outdoors.
Forest School for Schools
Everything we do centres around creating positive experiences- we do this by creating opportunities for success, having clear and simple rules, and genuinely caring about the children we interact with. Our staff are great role models for young people, and running sessions in natural environments introduces a wealth of scientifically proven benefits to the wellbeing of those attending.
We know our approach works because we constantly see dramatic, positive changes in the young people we work with in areas like self regulation, confidence and kindness.
We use the Forest School framework to enable all this- it’s an excellent way to create enjoyable spaces where students can experience learning and trying new things in a positive way- like exploring what effective teamwork looks and feels like, practising appropriate behaviour, and experiencing choosing to contain themselves
It works so well, our alternate provision was recently described as “the most effective alternate provision we use” by a SENCO in a local secondary. Want to learn more, or interested in how we could help your school? Click here for more information!
Forest School for Parents & Carers
Our holiday clubs are, in our opinion, the best around- and with an average age of about 12, they’re certainly unique. Parents and carers agree- they keep sending us older children, with positive feedback like “it’s fun, educational and outdoors and allows my child to enjoy nature and use his imagination.”, “my son has loved it”, and “we know and trust Adam to deliver fun (yet safe!), child-centred, outdoor activities”. Thanks for the great feedback!
Sessions run Fridays 9am to 4pm during school holidays at the woods next to Lansdown racecourse, and involve a mixture of fires, tree climbing, den building, team and trust games, and whatever else the children want to get up to! Sorry but it’s ages 9+ only (We make exceptions for siblings age 8+!)
