King Edward's School BATH

Forest school

We are very proud of our status as a Forest School, which grew from our desire to provide a curriculum which maximised the outdoor environment as a teaching and learning tool for our children. Through Forest School children are able to develop a life-long love and understanding of the natural environment, whilst developing self-esteem, confidence and social skills through carefully planned activities.

In support of outdoor learning we make the most of the School’s grounds, including the magical sensory garden, vegetable plot and wilderness and pond area, as well as making regular trips to Victoria Park and the nearby woods at Primrose Hill.

Activities range from exploring wildlife and habitats to den building and crafting wood using hand tools such as bow saws and billhooks.
