Barlborough Forest School

“Barlborough Forest School is an inspirational process that offers children and young people opportunities to achieve, develop confidence and self esteem, through hands-on learning experiences in a local woodland environment.”

At Forest School we aim to provide opportunities and activities which:

  • Encourage exploration and discovery of the world in an imaginative and creative way.
