Forest School and Outdoor Learning

Our team places great value on all learning that takes place outdoors. We have created a very exciting outdoor learning environment and have two outdoor classrooms that lead onto our own type of ‘Forest School’, allowing ‘free flow’ from the classroom to the outdoors.  A third classroom has just been installed, which is specifically designed to enhance the learning and teaching of maths and science.

 

We have a large and well established ‘Natural Forest School’ within the four acre grounds of Dorset House’s Residential Home.  Over many years we have established a fantastic and unique relationship with the home where we share various activities and events.
