Forest School Transitions - Magdalen Environmental Trust

Moving to a new large school can be a daunting experience for some students and a formal classroom environment can be challenging for others. This programme supports these children. Forest School activities are a great way of using the outdoors to build self-confidence and self-esteem, through learning practical skills that the children can’t normally experience in a traditional classroom setting.
