Forest School

Forest School

Wren Academy aims to create an inspirational community of learning rooted in Christian values, pupils are encouraged to be environmentally aware and embrace the Christian value of stewardship.  At Wren we are aware of our responsibility to be good stewards of God’s creation, recognising that all we have and all we are is a gift from God.

The Forest School of Wren use the natural outdoor woodland area to offer the children an insight into the Forest School ethos.  This approach to outdoor learning encourages children to become independent, use their imagination, take appropriate risks within boundaries and initiate learning themselves.  It helps to enhance learning, increase self-esteem, independence, risk taking, language and much more.
