What Our Families are Saying

St Helens Forest School is a true asset to our community. The school’s commitment to cultivating environmental consciousness among students is clearly evident. It’s wonderful to see young children actively involved in local conservation initiatives and displaying such enthusiasm for protecting and preserving the natural world.

The confidence and social skills my son has gained through his hands-on experiences are commendable. Not to mention, he’s always excited to share what he’s learned – from the different bird calls to recognizing various plant species! 

As a parent, I couldn’t be happier with the profound transformation I’ve seen in my daughter since she joined St Helens Forest School.
