School visits to Alice Holt Forest

Uncover the secrets of Alice Holt Forest with your class

Alice Holt Forest is on the Hampshire/Surrey border and within an hour’s drive of West London, Reading, Southampton and Portsmouth.  

A classroom with no walls 

The living, breathing forest is a versatile learning space, with room to think and space to explore. 

Plan sensory exploration or wildlife and habitat spotting with younger children. Older children can see how ecosystems work, undertake field studies or explore the science behind the tree lifecycle.  

Learning in a forest is also a practical way to immerse your class in a range of subjects. Spark students' imagination by delivering a lesson on any topic, using the setting as inspiration.  You can also hire our Ranger in a Bag resources for a fun-filled forest adventure!

Discover sustainable forest management in action

We grow, shape and care for forests, managing landscapes for people, wildlife and timber production.
