About Organisation

Dorset Forest School is a community interest company, which is expertly steered by Maddy, Helen and Jill. An amazing team are the backbone of Dorset Forest School.

Dorset Forest School has provided quality Forest School experiences for over 11 years and adheres to the Forest School Association (FSA) core principles. We aim to promote client led learning, exploration of the natural world, develop a sense of belonging and stewardship of the local landscape.

We believe that all members of society gain so much from being outside in the natural environment. Forest School holistically develops individual’s wellbeing-individuals gain self confidence, self awareness, independence, motivation and resilience.

Over last 10 years Dorset Forest School has served a variety of community groups. We have worked with parents and toddlers, mental health organisations, people living with dementia, looked after children and children that find school a challenging place be.

Forest school aims to equip individuals with transferable skills, which can be used in different situations such as effective risk assessing, working as a team, supporting peers and adaptability.

By providing positive experiences and achievable tasks individuals are motivated and inspired which enhances personal, social and emotional skills such as independence and self-discovery.
