Forest School Case Studies

The Forest of Avon Trust has worked with a wide variety of groups delivering Forest School sessions in woodlands in the Bristol area. These sessions have often followed a 6 week structure due to school term times and funding availability and have worked in partnership with settings and other partner organisations to explore the benefits for the groups involved.

The following short case studies explore the experiences of the groups and leaders involved in these sessions and provide links to key outcomes that are particularly relevant to those involved. Please contact us if you want further information about these.
