- Forest School
We offer a wide range of learning opportunities for young people in the great outdoors.
Our very popular Woodland Explorer Program is about getting young people to engage with the natural environment and to learn new skills outside the classroom with practical hands-on activities.
The program is aimed at young people aged between 8 to 13 years old.
The award is divided into three levels Bronze, Silver, and Gold. There are 12 main Key Skill Areas, which are then subdivided into activities of different skill levels.
The program will run through the school holidays. It is also possible to run this program on a weekly bases during term time either on your site or on ours. All activities can be linked to the National Curriculum. The groups sizes are small to enable maximum interaction and participation.
The participants work through the award at their own pace starting with the Bronze level. As they progress through the award the activities will become more challenging.
We are also registered with the NNAS and can deliver The Outdoor Discovery Award which teaches the basic elements of navigation.
Also we are registered with the Royal Forestry Society to deliver the Young Foresters Award
Learning outside the classroom gives children the contact with the natural world and offers them experiences that are unique to the outdoors, such as direct contact with the weather and seasons.
