Wild Schools

Supporting Primary & Secondary Schools to improve student wellbeing and resilience.

Wild Folk offer bespoke Forest School programmes for schools in Gloucestershire and North Bristol. 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.

What will we do?

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

  • Nature conservation

  • Fire lighting

  • Campfire cooking

  • Whittling

  • Nature identification

  • Mindfulness

  • Team building games

  • Storytelling

Students will practice a range of skills including fine & 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.

The practical stuff

We can deliver sessions in your school grounds or in a local green space, subject to landowner’s permission. We have insurances and risk assessments in place to cover our activities and will share these with you upon booking. 

Please get in touch to discuss your students' needs and book a trial session.
