Forest School

At Windermere, we run a Forest School programme with our residential Level 3 qualified instructor. Each Forest School is unique and we have designed ours to utilise the wonderful wooded grounds.

We embrace the Forest School philosophy, which is to encourage and inspire individuals of any age through positive outdoor experiences. We run specialised woodland activities with our youngest children and it is here that we start to nurture the life skills that we believe are so important in children’s education – self-awareness, independence, motivation, decision making, confidence and social empathy.

Our Forest School site within our grounds provides a wealth of exploration opportunities. There are small trees and bushes to climb, magical places to hide, secret passageways through shrubbery and a log circle for stories, songs, discoveries and even toasted marshmallows!
