Forest School

Mrs McTear is our Forest School leader

The British School is very fortunate to have a wonderful wooded area on the site. It has many mature trees such as oak and beech, which provide a wonderful setting for our Forest School. During the year each class take part in Forest School. This helps the children to grow in confidence, encourages independence and helps to raise their self-esteem through small achievable tasks.


Forest School takes place in all weathers (apart from high winds and thunder storms) and all the children wear appropriate clothing. Every child is supplied with a waterproof suit which our school were able to purchase with a grant provided by The Ernest Cook Trust.
