At Lakeside, we are lucky to have enough open space to run a Forest School programme.

A Forest School is an area of woodland, which acts as an outdoor classroom where children can explore, investigate & discover the natural environment. Teamwork skills are developed through games and activities, and individual skills and self-esteem are heightened throughout activities such as hide and seek, shelter building, or environmental art.

Sessions run throughout the year & in all weathers (except for high winds), at our Forest School area within our School grounds. This fantastic area has space for children to explore, and is equipped with a fire-pit, digging area/mud kitchen, a brand new metal workshop, and of course, lots of trees!
