Forest School

Forest School offers children the opportunity to experience nature first hand, through actively engaging in activities such as pond dipping, den building, cooking over a camp fire, making trails and hunting for mini-beasts! It is more than just getting the children out in to the fresh air; the Forest School initiative is infused with a social, emotional and environmental ethos that is consistent with Orchard's 'outdoor' approach to play based learning.


We have three Forest School trained staff who take small groups of children into the forest for a variety of wonderful learning experiences, please get in touch if you would like more information about our Forest School programme.


For more information on Forest Schools, including the amazing research and studies that have been carried out on children's social capabilities, co-ordination, concentration, awareness of risk taking and self esteem development, please check out the following link:
