Forest School

Forest School is a unique educational experience and process that offers children the opportunity to succeed and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experiences in a woodland environment.

Forest School sessions provide children with the opportunity to explore and experience the natural world through practical activities in the outdoors, which will in return help, promote confidence, independence and self esteem.

Forest School at Bamburgh. The story so far…

Mrs Marshall developed our Forest School on the top half of the school field from and alongside the MUGA. We worked with a company called Landscape Outlook to create a large pond area. Trees and shrubs have been added, alongside a firepit, den building areas, a mud kitchen and bug hotel.

We’ve been visited by a fox, lots of birds, butterflies and bugs.


Early Days

Spring 2022











We added a path throughout the site, which leads you through willow tunnels.











We even added a brilliant outdoor classroom.
