Forest School

Originating from Scandinavia in the 1950s, Forest School increases children’s understanding of, and appreciation for, the outdoors in a play-based environment. It forms an integral part of our curriculum, as we’ve found real experiences help make learning more purposeful and meaningful.

Forest School supports children to:

  • Develop an appreciation of nature and all living things
  • Make independent choices
  • Assess their own risks
  • Work as part of a team
  • Inquisitively question the world around them
  • Build their problem-solving skills
  • Adopt a positive attitude to learning

We find our own slice of nature within the capital by taking fortnightly trips to Wimbledon Common and Holland Park. Activities include understanding signs of seasonal changes, observing wildlife and insects, and learning how to use real tools safely.

Forest School is designed to allow children the opportunity to ‘give things a go’, and so we offer consistent encouragement and praise to create a positive experience.

We're having an Open Day!

We would love you to join us on:

Tuesday 13th December, from 2:30pm to 4:30pm at:
