Forest School

Welcome to Forest school! This is where the journey begins......and like any great story we pop on our wellies and jump through the willow arch and into a world of bugs, fire and freedom. We go quietly as we start to hear a noise… is it a bird, mouse or a dragon? The wind whistles by and the adventure in the Forest begins.


Forest School is the place where magic can start to happen as imaginations, self-confidence and vocabulary start to grow. Every visit to the Forest will be to the same place, yet the story will always change and be different. The amazing memories and adventures that take place in Forest School will always be enjoyed.


For more information about Forest School at St. John's, where Forest Schools originated and what life long skills can be developed please have a look at our information leaflet below and the Forest School Policy. You can also see how and what the children learn from their Forest School adventures and how it is linked to other areas of the curriculum.
