The Outdoors School Sites

Enjoy creating memories and developing your outdoor learning at our Forest School sites in Exeter, Exmouth, Okehampton and Tiverton.

The Outdoors School Exeter

Exeter will always hold a special place in our hearts as it was the first Forest School that we opened, back in 2010. Manager Chris White had been working at the neighbouring Shillingford Organics when he started plotting with Tom Lowday and Shevek Pring on how they could offer outdoor education to the children of Exeter. After identifying the forest next to the farm as the perfect venue, they approached Martyn Bragg (owner of Shillingford) who kindly agreed to rent it to us.

The site is now home to The Outdoors School Exeter. The Outdoors School is a full time provision for children with SEMH and ASD needs.

The Outdoors School Tiverton

In January 2018, The Outdoors Group began running Forest School sessions at the charity-run Tiverton Adventure Playground, nestled in among the stunning Scots pine trees and a young birch and ash woodland. This peaceful pocket of Tiverton proved perfect for our woodland activities. 

Our team of experienced Forest School leaders set up the site and has been running various programmes with local children for the past year. From September 2019 Tiverton Forest School became home to The Outdoors School. The Outdoors School is a full time provision for children with SEMH and ASD needs.
