Home-Educated and Flexi-Schooled children


If you are looking for child led, outdoor learning sessions that follow the interests of the children, rather than a prescribed curriculum, then join our Home-education group at Fireside Forest School, Chalford.   Working in collaboration with two other Forest School Leaders, we offer weekly sessions for home-educated and flexi-schooled children where they can join us for free play, exploration, art, craft and tool work.


Theses sessions are child-led and children can follow their own interests, spend some quality time, in the woods, around the fire, socialising with others or having a change of scene from learning at home.  We listen and respond to the learning needs of children and their families and also offer elements of more structured, adult-led learning activities; all delivered by qualified and experienced teachers.  Second children come at a discount rate. 

Sessions run on Wednesdays for 6-11 year olds and Fridays for 5-7 year olds, which is a smaller group for younger ones.
