We have three qualified Forest School Leaders at Hillside. This means we can fully operate access for all our pupils to an amazing experience!
Forest School is about getting out into woodland and the natural environment to explore and learn. We use tools, build shelters, look for wildlife, listen to the birds, explore and more! Taking part gives us opportunities to achieve and develop confidence, self-esteem and independence through hands-on learning experiences … and it’s great fun!
We have been awarded the Green Tree School Gold Award by the Woodland Trust.
This is achieved by taking part in a variety of hands-on, educational activities designed to encourage pupils to explore the natural world around them and use their imaginations.
