Guided visits to Sherwood Pines

Unique educational experiences at Sherwood Pines

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

Ranger-led sessions

Our Forest Rangers can lead sessions to enrich your curriculum and get your students working together. Suitable for key stage three and above, including adult learners, we can provide 'walks and talks' on Sustainable Forestry and Leisure and Tourism. These typically last between one and two hours. 

Training for teachers and group leaders 

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

1. 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.

2. 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.
