About the event

We are offering drop-off days for children aged 8 and over, in small, isolated groups, to explore our fabulous reserve for wildlife. Make shelters and climb trees, use natural materials for crafts and make fires with social distancing. Each group is lead by an experienced Forest School leader or education officer.

Our programme will help to build confidence, enhance self-esteem and develop social skills, all in the beautiful setting of Abbotts Hall Farm Forest School site.

Drop off and pick up point will be outside the main building from 9.00am-4.00pm each day. Outside toilets will be available for the session and each group will have their own designated toilet to use and is cleaned regularly. All children must be signed in and out.

child consent form must be completed for each child attending.
