Beyond the Playing Field

Forest School Awaits

Imagine a learning environment where classrooms are replaced by towering trees, textbooks with rustling leaves, and lessons with the symphony of birdsong. Welcome to Farringtons Prep School’s Forest School, an oasis within our 25-acre campus where children embark on a unique journey of discovery, exploration, and growth.

More Than Just Playtime

Our Forest School is not merely a playground; it’s a transformative space designed to nurture every child’s imagination, critical thinking, and risk management skills. Here, amidst the unpredictable and challenging landscape, children unlock a world of possibilities.

Beyond The Mud and Marshmallows

While building shelters, getting muddy, and enjoying toasted treats are certainly part of the fun, the Forest School experience goes far deeper. It cultivates essential life skills, sparks curiosity, and ignites a passion for the natural world.

Benefits That Bloom Beyond The Forest

Furthermore, the skills and experiences gained in Forest School don’t stay confined within the woods. They directly impact classroom learning, providing a foundation for problem-solving, critical thinking, and teamwork. More importantly, they equip children with valuable life skills that benefit them long after they leave our school gates.
