  • We have been running accredited Forest School training since 2010 and pride ourselves on the training and support we have provided many teachers, nursery leaders, outdoor trainers, support workers and others.
    Forest School has been defined as: inspirational process that offers ALL learners regular opportunities to achieve, develop confidence and self-esteem, through hands-on learning experiences in a woodland or natural environment with trees.
