Get your students out of the classroom with one of our forest-based educational experiences that really make the most of this unique learning environment.

Sherwood Bushcraft

We run a range of bushcraft courses, traditional woodland skills and team building activities all year round from our beautiful bushcraft camp in a quiet corner of Sherwood Pines. Great for youth groups, schools, team building, birthday parties and private functions. To find out more visit the Sherwood Bushcraft webpages or email karina.thornton@forestryengland.uk 

Ranger led sessions 

Our Forest Rangers can lead sessions to enrich your curriculum and get your students working together. Suitable for key stage 3 and above, including adult learners, we do 1-2 hour 'walks and talks' on Sustainable Forestry and Leisure & Tourism.

Training for teachers and group leaders 

Find out more about teaching and running environmental education sessions in the outdoors, with one of our two teacher training sessions:

  • Make the most of outdoor learning - Discover the benefits of learning outdoors, how it enhances the learning experience and supports the curriculum. You will learn how to give children a safe and enjoyable learning experience and gain ideas on how to involve your pupils with pre-visit planning through to follow up work. You will be equipped to plan for health and safety and adapt sessions to suit your group's needs and abilities.
  • Forests for the future - This course considers the importance of our forests through a mix of indoor learning and outdoor practical sessions. Discover how trees and forests help to combat climate change, how Forestry England manages them as a sustainable resource, and get practical and fun ideas on how to use forests as a learning resource.
