STANSTED PARK FOR SCHOOLS

 

Stansted Park is an Edwardian stately home set in 1800 acres of beautiful grounds.

 

The extensive servants' quarters and grand state rooms make it a fascinating place to learn about how life has changed over the last 100 years. In addition, the unique Chapel, the yew tree maze and beautiful Arboretum, with over 40 species of trees, allow for wider curriculum learning.

We have a range of curriculum-based workshops linked to History, Art, Literacy, Science and Religious Studies. All our workshops include hands-on activities.

FOREST SCHOOL AT STANSTED PARK

 

Stansted park is pleased to have a Forest School within our wonderful woodland. The Forest School is run by a local outdoor education charity Releasing Potential. Releasing Potential Forest School have been operating at Stansted Park for last 5 years providing Forest school to school groups.

SCHOOL PROGRAMMES

Releasing Potential deliver Forest School for schools, nurseries, home education and local SEN provisions across West Sussex and Hampshire. They can offer year long or shorter courses which enable participants to enjoy the forest and learn about it as the seasons unfold.

With the ability to focus provisions around any particular themes, needs, skills or ideas the school require the children to work on, Forest School can fit easily in to the current curriculum. This can be delivered as part of the school day. They are able to tailor provision to the age of the groups and have worked successfully with young people of all backgrounds and abilities, from nursery to year 11. Transport can be arranged to and from the Forest School site depending on the size of the group. Hot chocolate is made over an open fire and provided at breaks as part of the Forest School experience.
