IN A CLIMATE where our education system is predominantly classroom-based with a heavy focus on results in the curriculum, Forest School provides an exciting opportunity to take learning outdoors. An individual can develop key skills that are needed throughout life such as communication, resilience and teamwork. 

Importantly, Forest School is about engaging a learner in fun activities outdoors. Once engaged, Forest School can provide a platform for learners to understand more about themselves, each other, and the world we live in.

It is important to note that in Forest School sessions there is more emphasis on developing self-esteem and self-worth, with the aim of developing a child’s emotional intelligence. We believe that every individual can achieve what they want when they are given a safe, nurturing and engaging learning environment.


At Be Free Forest School we aim to use the natural environment to engage the children in learning through the forest school ethos. This transformational approach to learning encourages children to become independent, use their imagination, take appropriate risks within boundaries and initiate learning for themselves.

Forest School is a holistic approach welcoming children’s individuality, which develops their skills for lifelong learning. Forest School explores the outdoors and the natural environment with practical, useful, and achievable activities, building upon emotional and spiritual aspects of learning. Through these learning opportunities, catered to children’s interests and needs, their self-esteem and self-confidence can grow and positive relationships with peers can be formed.
