Forest school aims to equip individuals with transferable skills, which can be used in different situations such as effective risk assessing, working as a team, supporting peers and adaptability.

By providing positive experiences and achievable tasks individuals are motivated and inspired which enhances personal, social and emotional skills such as independence and self-discovery.

“Forest School is an inspirational process that offers children, young people and adults regular opportunities to achieve, and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands on learning experiences in a woodland environment.”
