A place to get active
In the words of our visitors
- I wanted to extend my thanks to you, Beth and staff for the opportunity to join my daughter Eve and the rest of the 'tribe' last Friday in the woods. Eve gained so much personally from just two solid days with you, she was beaming as we were driving home both covered in mud and paint!

Into The Woods: Forest School
Into the Woods is our Forest School, programme drawing on the natural learning environment of the Sharpham estate and the training of the highly skilled and qualified Sharpham Outdoors Project team.
It has been developed by our rangers, Anna McNeill and Beth using the forest school approach to learning, with a strong emphasis on positive affirmation and setting students up to succeed while recognising the importance of learning by doing.
The Forest School approach, of child-led experiential learning, is ideally suited to families who are home educating their children. With this in mind, we have created a fortnightly session specifically for those families. The sessions are based on natural world activities targeting specifically the home school network, bringing parents and children of different ages together to form a self supporting circle. Each activity includes a sharing of stories and food, seasonal crafts and bush craft skills with children at the heart.
