Forest Schools

A Forest School is an innovative educational approach to outdoor play and learning.


It is a time when pupils are taken to familiar woodland to play and learn, some of the play will be directed by adults but most will be led by the pupils themselves.  They will be given chance to play together and work as a team developing communication skills and team work abilities


British Forest Schools have been developed and adapted from the original concept implemented in Sweden in the 1950’s and developed throughout other Scandinavian and European Countries.


In a Forest School pupils are not taught or even shown.  They find out for themselves


At Lexden Springs we want our pupils to have fun, be happy and relaxed whilst learning, develop confidence in their own abilities and allow them to develop as young people.
