School visits to Rendlesham Forest

Discover Rendlesham Forest with your class

Rendlesham Forest, located in an area of outstanding natural beauty in Suffolk, is a wonderful setting for educational groups.

The living, breathing woodland 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.
