Forest School has been running at Brymore for the past year working with Year 9 students and we are now offering all Year 7 students, on a rolling programme, the opportunity to participate in outdoor projects.
Mr Ball is our Forest School Leader and takes all of the groups. We have the perfect venue at Brymore to stage Forest School within our own woods, providing a safe environment on site and giving us the best use of time.
The students will be involved in a number of activities including: setting up a Forest School base camp, mak-ing mallets, tree identification, building shelters, making hurdle fences, learning about the environment and growing food as well as some outdoor cooking opportunities!
These practical tasks are also ideal for developing social skills, teamwork, mentoring and fostering respect amongst the peer group. We know that all of these skills are vital for the boys to continue to develop as they begin their journey at Brymore.
