Forest Schools


Forest School

The Education Team at Nene Park Trust are very excited to be able to offer a variety of outdoor learning opportunities through our approved Forest Schools site based at Ferry Meadows.


We can offer:


Forest School courses  

An opportunity for children to make regular visits to the same site to take part in a variety of activities.  Our staff will work with you to develop a programme tailored around the needs and interests of your children.  Activities may include: using natural materials to make things, using hand tools, having campfires, building dens, finding and identifying different plants and animals.  Courses are booked in blocks of 6 sessions.  Sessions last for 2 hours and usually take place weekly or fortnightly.


Forest school taster days

A full day of Forest School activities.  Sessions will include a range of activities and may feature tool and fire use.  A great way to introduce your children to forest schools or to have a go at some of the Forest School activities you can't do at your own school site.


Use our site and equipment to deliver your own sessions

If you have a member of staff with a level 3 Forest School qualification you can hire our site and equipment to deliver your own Forest School sessions.
