Forest School

Forest School Here at Cherhill

Each week the children in Years 1 and 2 take part in planned Forest School sessions lead by a forest school teacher.

We have a dedicated area, which has been recently developed, for the children to use.

Forest School and Outdoor Learning


Forest school and outdoor learning has been present in Scandinavian education since 1950, but was really developed in the 1980s. It has been present here in the UK since 1993.


It is based around 'freely chosen, personally directed and intrinsically motivated activities that benefit children in the following ways: Physical, Social, Intellectual, Emotional and Risk Taking.'


It is all about allowing children space to explore the way they learn.
