FOREST SCHOOL EXPERIENCE
The philosophy of Forest Schools is to encourage and
inspire children through positive outdoor
experiences. We plan exciting activities that will engage
them in all aspects of our woodland area.
Forest Schools stimulate imagination and encourage
self belief and confidence, whilst learning how to take
ownership of risks and make informed decisions.
Forest School is an inspirational process that offers children
regular opportunities to achieve through hands on learning
experiences in a local woodland environment.
“Forest School is a wonderful part of EHNPS’s curriculum. It’s well run, great fun and the children learn a huge amount without even noticing. Fathers in the Forest is a lovely opportunity for the male role models in the children’s lives to share the experience and to see and hear first-hand everything the children have learnt throughout the year”.

Every session we will walk over to Harptree Court with our intrepid explorers to spend about an hour and a half outdoors in a truly beautiful setting. We are very lucky to have such an amazing facility on our doorstep and aim to utilise it to its full potential over each academic year.

We run Forest School whatever the weather. We will provide waterproof trousers, rain coats and an explorers backpack.
We ask children to come equiped with the following:
Wellies, long sleeved top, full length trousers and a water bottle.
Please note that Forest School sessions are add-on value enhanced experiences - core attendance hours apply prior to booking a Forest School session. (I.e. Minimum 6 hours plus Forest School.)
