Forest School Sessions

Since opening in the Summer of 2015 we have worked with a variety of groups including:

  • Activities week sessions for secondary school students.

  • An after school club at a local primary school for Key Stage 2 students.

  • Holiday club sessions for a group of children between 5 and 11 years old

  • A parent and toddler session

  • Family den days.

  • Saturday Club sessions

  • A regular, weekly progamme of sessions for students at local alternative provision schools. 

  • Successful taster sessions for children from local primary and secondary schools and hope to begin regular sessions with them soon. 

  • We have run a long term pilot programme with a group of year 5 and 6 students. During this programme children the children became really familiar with the site, learnt lots of new skills and developed hugely in terms of physical and social confidence.


Since this time last year the site has really taken shape. Our regular groups have become familiar with our main base camp area by the river and we are to preparing some other areas for additional base areas. With our regular clients we will be building shelters and equipment in these areas to give us a wider range of facilities for visitors to use.
