Forest Frontiers

Join in Now

The aim of Forest Frontiers & Forest School is to work with a variety of individuals in the outdoors over a period of time, introducing responsible risk‐taking and fostering achievement in all participants.

Children are supported in their learning through an holistic approach which can encourages the exploration of the outdoor environment and an appreciation for nature.  

Our team use learning and teaching strategies which develop confidence, emotional resilience, independence, language and communication skills and increase levels of physical activity and mental well‐being.

Key Features of Forest Frontiers

Woodland Setting

The use of a woodland‐learning environment is complimentary, therefore not separate to traditional classroom and playground learning meaning our sessions are highly child‐centred.

Outdoor time

Sessions are regular and frequent to encourage time in the outdoors. Forest Frontier School is not an actual place but a specific ethos.  It is a way of working with people in an outdoor natural space for an extended period of time and a philosophy built around a programme of engaging activities.

U

Freedom to Explore

Children and families are given the freedom to explore sense of self and place using multiple senses 

Qualified Staff

Sessions are ran by qualified Forest School Leaders (Level 3 Open Award) and there is a high adult to child ratio
