Forest School: an outdoor educational curriculum for the very young


The Forest School programme offers an imaginative approach to the teaching of a range of pupils, from pre-school children through to disadvantaged and disaffected older children and students. The Forest School uses woodland areas as its classroom and has developed its own curriculum. Hands-on activities with natural materials develop practical and intellectual skills, and notable growth in self-esteem and confidence. The School overcomes barriers to learning, leading to educational achievement and the fulfilment of potential.
