Forest Schools

Home/Teaching & Learning/Forest Schools

At Oakway Academy we are proud of the grounds that surround our school buildings.  We are lucky to have extensive playgrounds and a large field as well as a Forest area with an outdoor classroom and wildlife pond on site.

The philosophy of ‘Forest Schools’ is to encourage and inspire individuals of any age through an innovative, long term, educational approach to outdoor play and learning in a woodland environment. 

Teamwork skills are developed through games and activities. Individual skills and self-esteem are heightened throughout activities such as hide and seek, shelter building, tool skills, lighting fires or environmental art, the list is endless. Each activity is designed to develop intra and inter-personal skills as well as practical and intellectual skills. 

Together we are Growing PRIDE and learning outdoors at Oakway Academy.
