"The Reception children love Forest School. It is wonderful to see them experiencing things we can't provide in the classroom such as building woodland dens and cooking on an open fire.
Children who struggle to communicate become eager to speak and full of things to say, they have started to notice their world around them and make links to their experiences they have not been able to do before. I have seen timid children become brave and full of things to say. We have seen amazing results in writing and creativity. We have all loved it!”
Sharon Cliff, Head of Early Years - Ringmer Primary School.

"The Fire and Tools CPD was a great day! There was so much packed in and still space to accommodate our questions and needs. It was an inspiring day, ticking off some personal goals and leaving me hungry once more. Thank you!"

"Having attended the Family Day back in April, I would absolutely recommend this to any family. The boys had a great time learning new games in the woods, how to build a fire and make things from wood. It was wonderful to spend a whole day together and enjoy being in the fresh air. Marina and her team were so inspiring, passionate and patient. The kids can't wait to go back!"
Sarah Smith - parent, April 2017.
"Today we made dens, fires, cooked toffee apples over the fire, had a conker challenge....the kids learnt new skills and we spent time together as a family, it was really wonderful! Thank you all for a lovely day in the woods."

"I didn't think that I liked camping but I have underestimated myself. The camp was amazing, I have not only learnt new skills but I have learnt to be grateful about everything around me. I have a new sense of confidence and believe in myself."

"Thank you so much for a fantastic day in the woods on Friday - I loved it! The course was the perfect mixture of practical and theoretical (and also a little bit magical too!). I loved thinking of plants in terms of directions and times of life."
