We are based in the heart of the Clinton Devon Estate in a beautiful 60 year old woodland. Exmouth Forest School was created by a passionate team of trained Forest School Leaders who set up our sister Forest School, Exeter Forest School.
Nick Murphy, Manager of Exmouth Forest School has lived in Exmouth for ten years, having studied at Rolle College. His housemate for much of this time was Chris White, Manager of Exeter Forest School. Chris first discovered Forest School whilst studying Early Childhood at Rolle College and was hooked from his first woodland experience at Bystock Woods.
Our Exmouth site offers the ideal setting for our Forest School activities. Knowle Corner Woods is a large area of 1960’s Norwegian Spruce, offering the original Scandinavian Forest School feel.
Situated at the top of Salterton Road, it offers an idyllic woodland setting just minutes from Exmouth and surrounding towns. We also have access from the cycle path to Budleigh, allowing you to have a totally carbon neutral day out.
Forest School is all about reconnecting with your natural surroundings, building confidence through traditional activities and team-work. Our Toddler Clubs, Holiday Clubs and Birthday Parties will get you and your children outdoors, smiling and learning.
We are very grateful to Clinton Devon Estates for the opportunity to use their land for Exmouth Forest School. It has been a pleasure working with John Wilding, who sees our partnership as a wonderful way to carry on Clinton Devon Estates’ excellent work in connecting communities with the countryside.
