Forest School

A forest school is an inspirational process that offers children, young people and adults regular opportunities to appreciate and enjoy their local woodlands. A forest school nurtures an understanding and respect for natural places.

“Sussex Wildlife Trust planted a forest school seed with us which together we nurtured and grew. With support, encouragement and training from SWT, Forest School is now strongly embedded into our curriculum and is at the heart of our school ethos. Our children love every minute of it; as one of our 4 year olds said “I forgot I was at school!”

— Sharon Allen, Headteacher Bolnore School
