    To connect with nature is central for everybody’s wellbeing, personal development and learning.

    Chichester Forest Schools CIC is a community Forest School established in 2016.

    We use the forest school approach, and access to nature, to bring about growth and change, facilitating a journey of self-discovery and connection with the natural world. We enable holistic learning through developing new skills, play and exploration and a stronger sense of community.

    We offer forest school programmes to schools, home educators, and families with children of all ages throughout the year. We have a nurturing Alternative Provision Programme and offer the John Muir Conservation Award.

    Our community grant-funded programmes support families, teenagers and adults that are in need due to the impact of trauma, chronic illness, isolation, and poor mental health.

    We have an incredible team of leaders who share our vision to support our community. We strive for excellence in all we do and in 2017 became a Recognised Forest School Provider for the Forest School Association, the only independent provider in West Sussex to meet the criteria for this with our long term programmes.
