Holiday Activity Days Frequently Asked Questions
What time do Holiday Activity days start and end?
Forest School Activity Days begin at 08:30. If you are running late, please call our office on 023 9247 9762 as soon as you can so that we can inform the Forest School team of your whereabouts. Your child will finish just before 15:30 and will be ready to collect at this time.
Where should I come to when I drop my child off?
If your child is attending Forest School at Stansted Park, you will need to drop them off in the car park to the Stansted House Offices, PO9 6DX (not the turn-off for the Garden Centre car park). Once you have turned off at the sign for Stansted House Offices, follow the road up and to the right where you will see several connected car parks. The drop off point is signposted; the Forest School team will meet you at 08:30 in the car park. After dropping off your child, they will be transported to the Forest School site.
If your child is attending Forest School at Slindon Woods, you will need to drop them off under the flag pole at the entrance to the primary school on Mead Sway Rd. The Forest School woods are situated next to Slindon Primary School, BN18 0QU. Please note that another Forest School operates in the area, be careful to check your name against our list when dropping your child off.

Forest School leaders will always do their best to accommodate children with physical disabilities, but, unavaiodably, access to the forest can be difficult. If your child has a physical disability, please contact us before booking to discuss whether we can make it possible for them to attend.
