Forest School Sessions for School Groups

Inspiring woodland activity sessions for school groups.

Regular sessions or 6-week course block

If you’d like to offer an immersive introduction to Forest School for your school and pupils, we can tailor a block of sessions to suit your pupils’ and your school’s needs.

Schools can sign up to a series of half day sessions for five weeks, with a final day at Exmouth Forest School. This is a great way for pupils and staff to get a sense and understanding of the Forest School ethos.

Case study – Clyst St Mary
We spent five Wednesday mornings developing the Forest School area with the Year 4 class in September and October 2017. We built a mud kitchen together and set up a big bug hotel. In February and March we returned to develop some skills with the Year 4 class. They really enjoyed the team bonding and whittling skills we worked on. We’ll be returning in June and July to see the Year 2 group. They can explore the site more and add their own touch to the Forest School experience each week.

Please note: this six-week timeframe is flexible. Please get in touch by filling in the form below to start the ball rolling and we can discuss options, timeframes and prices.

One off sessions or activity days

Do you want to bring your class out to the woods for a day of woodland based activities?

We offer all sorts of activity days for local schools based on Forest School principles at one of our beautiful woodland sites. 

We can tailor the sessions to any age group. Our focus is on learning through exploration and discovery outdoors. Here are some examples of themes we’ve explored with schools:

The Forest School experience
An insight into forest school: building dens, creativity, teamwork, exploring the woodland, games, campfires and child-led fun.

Team building day (with links to the curriculum if required)
Develop a sense of achievement within a team, bring attendees closer through activities that engage groups, encourage cooperation and a shared sense of fun through challenge.

Bushcraft survival day
For smaller groups who would like to develop more advanced skills: tool work, camp craft, fire lighting and survival skills, utilising the outdoors.

Themed days for younger groups
Focusing on favorite themes and linking this to fun creative activities. Stickman, The Gruffalo, We’re Going on a Bear Hunt and more. Crafts, treasure-hunts and discovery.

The above sessions are priced at £150 for a half day (9.30am-12.30pm) or £225 for a full day (9.30-3pm). Prices subject to VAT.

These are just some examples. For more information and to discuss your requirements please fill in the form at the bottom of the page, or email us on hello@swoutdoorsgroup.co.uk and we can talk through options and themes.

Our vision for schools is to provide...

OPPORTUNITY

For all Schools

To have access to outdoor education within their curriculum and opportunities to learn in outdoor spaces. We work with a range of schools to create this opportunity.

ALTERNATIVE EDUCATION

For all Students

We understand that students learn differently. That’s why we create bespoke sessions that are inclusive of students who may not thrive within a classroom setting.

LONG TERM RELATIONSHIPS

For all Teachers

We establish a relationship with students and teachers within the schools we work with, to support their ongoing development and offer advice and outdoor education consultancy.
