Suckley School

Happy, Aspirational and Ready for Life

Forest School


"The philosophy of Forest Schools is 'to encourage and inspire individuals of any age through an innovative, long term, educational approach to outdoor play and learning in a woodland environment."

Here at Suckley School we firmly believe in the benefits of outdoor learning. Every child has a learning session at Forest School once a week, and we have recently opened an after school club too. 

Forest School in action. Look at those super school waterproofs!
