Testimonials for Forest Schools


What our schools and kids say about us

‘Wow - what a brilliant day with Bucks Forest School. We are a primary special needs school and it was wonderful to see all our children accessing and thoroughly enjoying the range of activities - thank you! It was a delight to see their creativity and natural inquisition shine through nature and I can’t wait for you to come back and work with the children again.’

‘This afternoon (with Bucks Forest School) was the best moment I’ve had at CGS - to see the happiness and joy on our boys’ faces will be in my heart forever and what I take away from there! Ethan’s face was the happiest and brightest I’ve ever seen.’

Thomas - Pupil,
Aged 9

Thank you Steve for you amazing organisation and adaptability. Your being a teacher clearly showed in your ability to develop a positive relationship with the pupils and your ability to support our current curriculum. All pupils, without exception, thoroughly enjoyed their experience and you have created memories that I have no doubt, will remain with them as they transfer to secondary school.
Karen White, Year 6 Class Teacher, Bookerhill Primary School

I have been very impressed to see how well the children responded to learning in the natural environment, managing risks safely, collaborating with others and demonstrating resilience. How visible the growth of learning in terms of character skills has been in each session.

Thank you Steve for this wonderful opportunity.
Mrs Joanne Robertson – Head Teacher, Bookerhill Primary School

As a teacher I have found the whole journey amazing, the first session I honestly hated the amount of freedom we had to give them. But after realising that the children were safe and seeing their enjoyment was  profound, I would strongly recommend Forest Schools as it allows all children to flourish. It also allows the children who can struggle to focus in a regimented classroom environment exceed. - The children who display negative behaviour patterns in class, often are extremely well behaved because they are engaging in activities which are achievable from them; thus allowing their feeling of worth and self belief increase.       
Kirsty Webb – Year 3 Class Teacher

Chiltern Gate School are very pleased with the quality and delivery of the Forest School programme – the children are making exceptional progress
