Stocks Wood Outdoor Centre can deliver a half term programme to enhance your home school curriculum. Delivered by a qualified teacher and qualified Forest School leaders, sessions promote learning across a range of academic subjects as well as through child-led activities and play in an outdoor setting.

Using the Forest School model of learning, our fun activities support reading, writing, maths and science as well as music, geography, and more. 

Your children will become more self-confident, recognising and managing risks in an outdoor environment that rewards curiosity.

We provide a range of activities and can tailor them to the specific needs of your child. Many favourite activities include:

  • Shelter building - using a range of knots and learning about woodland management

  • Fire - fire lore, construction and cooking

  • Tools - safely and confidently using a range of tools including knives and billhooks

  • Games and investigations

  • Natural art and crafts

  • 'Flow time' - free play using a range of natural and man-made resources


Sessions are 2 hours long and are delivered in a 6 week half term. Regular attendance is necessary to allow children time to learn and develop new skills.

Please contact us for prices. Additional siblings receive a 25% discount.

Our programme is suitable for children aged between 5 and 11.

Parents/carers are very welcome to join in the fun, stay and chat or return at the end of the session.
