The four students who worked on the project

Since September, the four students have been working on the site to remove brambles, clear litter and develop stimulating areas for children to explore and learn.

The students were given the project as part of their final year studies

Both adults and children are able to use the Forest School.

As part of the project, the team had a nursery group come to the site to experience the Forest School, where the children took part in den building, looked at minibeasts and assessed their own risks through play and exploration.

Charlotte Gallina Breese, one of the students who worked on the project, said that developing the Forest School had been “exhilarating”.
