Our ethos

We are a company that has an innovative approach to the outdoors, where exploring, playing and learning form part of an exciting adventure, we offer children and young people of all ages and abilities the opportunity to explore the wonders of the woodland.

Wrekin Forest School, provides ways of meeting National Curriculum learning objectives whilst developing practical life skills and encouraging child initiated learning for all ages & abilities, which is observed and assessed. Many children benefit from and prefer a practical element to their learning, and achieve greater levels of success when this is combined with traditional classroom learning. All children benefit from opportunities to demonstrate a wider range of knowledge and expertise – especially important for those who don’t often ‘shine’ in the classroom.

Forest School also has additional physical, social and health benefits for children and young people who are leading increasingly indoor lives, helping them to enjoy physical activity outdoors and mitigate obesity. Children and young people become more confident in their own natural and made environments, and acquire a deeper understanding about environmental issues locally and globally.

Our team

Wrekin Forest School has a fun-loving, passionate team who thrive on seeing children succeed and is particularly successful in developing self-esteem and confidence, and motivating children who, for a range of reasons, struggle in a classroom environment.
