Surrey Hills Forest School

An Outdoor Pre-School following the Forest School Approach

What is an outdoor pre-school?

We are an Outdoor Pre-School who follow the Forest School approach. This means that where possible, learning is initiated by those taking part, centred on the needs of the individual. We take a long-term sustained approach, inspiring the children through hands-on positive experiences. Surrey Hills Forest School is fully Ofsted registered.

Our Outdoor Pre-School takes place on Mondays, Wednesday and Fridays from 9am to 4pm during term time at Birtley Estate in Bramley, Guildford.

Birtley Estate

Birtley Estate is set within 48 acres of beautiful Surrey Hills countryside, made up of a cider orchard, formal gardens and a lake stocked with Brown trout. Records for the estate go back to the 12th century.

Surrey Hills Forest School is lucky to have permission to use the woodland and surrounding grounds for an Outdoor Pre-School. As part of the agreement with the owners of the Estate the Pre-School will regularly visit the residents of the onsite care home.
