Forest Schools

Forest School in an inspirational process that offers all learners regular opportunities to achieve and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experiences in a woodland or outdoor setting.

Our Forest School was established in the spring of 2014, and thanks to the support of the Trustees of Chislehurst Commons, we use a variety of sites within the Commons land.

Forest School provides children with opportunities to explore the outdoors in a safe environment. We hope that by being given appropriately challenging and achievable tasks, children will develop their confidence, skills and independence, as well as their ability to explore their own thoughts, feelings and relationships.

Most importantly, at Forest School we have fun getting muddy and messy with our friends...and a mug of hot chocolate at the end of a hard day's exploring is always much appreciated!
