"I can't wait to go to the woods. We climb, build and explore.

It makes me feel alive"

Oak Class Pupil


What is Forest School?

Forest School is an inspirational process, that offers ALL learners regular opportunities to achieve and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experiences in a woodland or natural environment with trees.


Forest school promotes resilience, independence and fosters a sense of community and a love and respect of nature. It is a core part of the Kingswode Hoe outdoor learning curriculum for KS2 and year 7 pupils.
