Wild Schools

Supporting Secondary Schools to improve student wellbeing and resilience.

Wild Folk offer bespoke Forest School programmes for secondary schools in Bristol and the surrounding areas. We can run weekly sessions for small groups of students during the school day or as an After School Club.

These sessions are ideal for students who struggle in the classroom or need help improving their confidence as they move towards adulthood. Sessions are tailored to the learners and we move at their pace to develop new skills that will stay with them for life.

Sessions will include a range of play, environmental education and bush craft activities, for example:

  • Fire lighting

  • Campfire cooking

  • Whittling

  • Nature identification

  • Mindfulness

  • Team building games

  • Storytelling

Students will practice a range of skills including fine and gross motor skills, concentration, leadership, empathy, problem-solving and determination.

We will incidentally cover different aspects of the curriculum including Environment & Climate Change, Food & Nutrition, Ecology, English and Woodwork Skills. These can be tailored depending on the students’ needs.

We can deliver sessions in your school grounds or in a local park, subject to landowner’s permission.

If you would like to trial a block of sessions for a term, please get in touch to discuss your students’ needs.

Prices start at £8 per student for after school clubs and £50 per student for day-time support.
