Releasing Potential Forest School….

We launched our Forest School in September 2012, when we began to deliver one day a week to a nearby primary and nursery school. Since that time our provision has grown, so that we are now running Forest School five days a week, for a number of schools and nurseries in the Hampshire and West Sussex region. We also run weekend and school holiday groups, parties, family experience and corporate activity days. From our woodland sites at Stansted Park in Hampshire, and Slindon Woods in West Sussex, we create a safe and exciting space for learning and play for children from 4 to 11 and beyond.

School Programmes

We offer Forest School in partnership with local schools, nurseries, and other organisations. Forest School gives children the opportunity to play and explore in a local woodland as part of their term-time schooling. The range of activities is enormous, and children are always inventing new ways of playing, and engaging with nature.

Holiday Activities

During the school holidays Forest School offers children aged 4-11 the opportunity to experience a day in the forest taking part in range of fun activities. Parents can book children onto Forest School Holiday Activities for anything from a day to a whole week or more.

Forest Explorers

Forest Explorers is our provision for young people. Available to older children, Explorers is the next part of a child's journey in exploring and discovering the outdoors whilst learning new skills in bushcraft. Young people can achieve badges and a stamp in their Forest Explorers' passport as they progress in their skills.

Forest Tots is our parent and toddler group for preschool children aged 0-4 years. We meet at a local park in West Sussex. The group provides an opportunity for parents to explore the outdoor woodland environment. Sessions include play, woodland craft and story time.

“It’s all adventury………”


Forest School and Forest Explorers offers your child the opportunity to grow in confidence, develop practical and social skills, and work with other children in a safe environment with a small amount of managed risk.

Children love taking part in woodland activities, but don’t just take our word for it – watch our short film to hear from one of our experts…..
