'Passion for learning, education for life'

Year Four Forest School.

Mrs Leadley and the Forest School Team would like to welcome you to our sessions.
Forest School is an outdoor, educational ethos that originated in Denmark for pre-school children. During the 1980's, the idea was brought back to Britain and is currently spreading rapidly throughout the country for children and young adults of all ages and abilities.
Through exploration, investigation, team work and child-led activities, all aspects of our children's development are promoted and celebrated. Improvements in self-esteem, self-confidence, communication and fitness are encouraged as well as the practical application of curriculum subjects.
Welcome, we can't wait to see you in a wood near here!


We were so proud to support the Remembrance celebrations on Barr Beacon.


Having a film crew along for the day was so exciting. The resulting film will be available on the Barr Beacon website. Watch this space for details.
