“Must we always teach our children with books? Let them look at the mountains and the stars up above. Let them look at the beauty of the waters and the trees and flowers on earth. They will then begin to think, and to think is the beginning of a real education”

A school like no other.

A school for 8-12 year old wild boys and girls who love days of challenges, skills and adventures.

For kids who love messing about in the woods with sticks, streams, mud, fires and a pinch of danger!

We are delighted to offer a series of varied and exciting bushcraft days – one per school holiday – starting at Easter. Each day will include various activities, drawing upon bushcraft, fieldcraft and nature awareness and include shelter-building, firecraft, campfire cookery, woodcraft, making traditional weapons, natural cordage and weaving, natural remedies, potions and lotions, wildlife identification, tracking & stealth.

Each day will be adapted to suit the age / skills / experience and interests of the children plus the level of challenge adapted so that those who have previously attended can develop and enhance their skills. 

Dates: one Wild School day per school holiday starting at Easter – dates to be confirmed very soon! 

  • April 9th (Easter);  
  • May 28th (spring half-term); 
  • August 13th (summer) and 
  • October 29th (autumn half-term)
