Offering a range of services for schools and nurseries

Manor House Forest School works with all ages from 3 – 18 years old. The dedicated 7-acre site at the prestigious Quex Park is so diverse and offers many unique learning opportunities.

Classroom and indoor environments can sometimes hinder children’s development, and this can be very frustrating for them. We recognise that all children don’t learn in the same way. We embrace this.

Forest School is an accelerated learning programme offering children and young people another method of learning, unique and refreshingly different from what’s on offer in the classroom today. Schools and nurseries can show a diverse range of methods used to meet the needs of the differing range of learning styles that children have.

Your school can lead the way in showing parents that you care deeply about providing different learning styles. We ‘switch’ kids back on to loving learning again.

One-day class trips

What could be better than a whole day of fun in the Forest?

It’s surrounded by open pasture, and has a mixture of mature trees and newer growth, containing horse chestnut, ash, sycamore, yew and oak and a lovely full canopy during the summer. It’s a magical place for children to explore!
