Bridgwater College is the pioneer of the Forest School concept in the UK. In 1993, a team from Bridgwater College visited Denmark on an exchange visit and were inspired by the encouragement the Danish schools give to outdoor activities. On their return to Somerset, they set up the Forest School—the first of its kind in the UK—which has now become widely accepted across the country as a valuable mode of learning for all ages and client groups.
Bridgwater College staff go out to other areas of the UK giving training to those interested in running or participating in Forest School provision to spread the good practice of the College's Forest School nationally and internationally.
