Specialising in Outdoor Learning, Education, Forest School and Training

Hello. We're The Outdoors Group

Since our inception in 2009, our philosophy and practice has developed and evolved in accordance with the needs of our attendees. Exploring life-lessons through practical skills and group engagement, key to our delivery has always been rooted in a holistic approach, addressing social and emotional wellbeing and development to promote rounded, confident and resilient children that are considerate of the community they are a part of and the environment that we all share.

Our staff are experienced Forest School Leaders with a love of the outdoors and a passion for using the natural environment to inspire, educate and nurture. As a team, we continuously share skills and knowledge, enabling us to develop our provision through best practice rather than being influenced by criteria that has become standardised to enable forest school to be applied to the mainstream setting. We are committed to offering a safe and stimulating, yet relaxed and friendly environment where children are free to lead their own learning journey in nature’s very own playground.

We strive to keep our prices affordable and to follow a schedule that allows as many children as possible to experience what we offer. Where long term attendance and seeing the seasons develop and change year-through is not always possible, we believe that a short experience of Forest School is better than none at all.

As our team has grown in both number and experience, our ethos and practice has remained true; Providing the space for our attendees to PLAY, EXPLORE, DISCOVER and LEARN.

Our overall vision is to provide...


Our organisation was created to ensure everyone has the opportunity to learn with nature and experience the outdoors in as many ways as possible. We’re passionate about reconnecting you with nature.



We believe everyone should be able to experience what we offer at The Outdoors Group. Whatever your background or circumstances, you’ll be made to feel welcome and we’ll accommodate you as best as we can.



We believe that all schools should have access to outdoor learning and green spaces. Our team support this development within educational organisations across the South West and beyond.
