Forest School

This section

We aspire to offer every child a Forest School experience during their time in the Pre-Prep.

Through Forest School children are able to develop a lifelong love and understanding of the natural environment, whilst developing the core purposes of the Forest School ethos, namely, development of self-esteem, confidence and social skills.

All sessions take place in various woodland sites within the school grounds and are supervised by qualified Forest School Practitioners. During Forest School sessions children will wear comfortable and appropriate home clothing, including full waterproofs and wellington boots, in order to maximize their experience.

The learning is play-based and, as far as possible, child-initiated and child-led, giving each child the opportunity to manage risks, explore opportunities and gain a range of skills in the natural environment.
