Forest School

All juniors experience blocks of time at Forest School which takes place in the woods at Nymans National Trust just down the road.

Forest School is a concept taken from a Scandinavian model of education where children interact with nature from a young age. It places an emphasis on self-led learning and aims to nurture team spirit as well as spark an interest in, and respect for, the living things around the woodland.

Children learn how to build & light camp fires, prepare, cook & share food around the fire circle, build dens and practice woodworking skills.

There is also plenty of time and freedom for them to make new friends, explore their surroundings and use their imaginations to create games, challenges and experiences of their own.
