Forest School

Here at St James' we are lucky to be surrounded by the beautiful Malvern Hills and we pride ourselves on taking every opportunity to take our learning outside. We have access to a beautiful ancient woodland just a short walk away from the school where every class attends forest school every week.


Forest School is a child-centred learning program in an outdoor nature based environment, that offers opportunities for holistic growth through regular sessions. It is a long-term program that supports play, exploration and supported risk taking. It develops confidence and self-esteem through learner inspired, hands-on experiences in a natural setting.


Activities include fire lighting, whittling, den building and is lots of fun!!
