Forest School

with Mr Phillips


Minterne Forest School provides learners with the opportunity to follow their interests, develop confidence and self-esteem through the process of outdoor learning whilst developing their knowledge of the natural world. It encourages a ‘hands on’ approach to learning and will facilitate learning inside the classroom and beyond.


The Forest School experience is an ongoing holistic process that develops key aspects of personality such as resilience, perseverance, motivation, independence, risk taking and attention. This will contribute to their learning in the classroom as they will be developing skills that apply to a wide range of situations; learning for a lifetime.
