Welcome to Rufford Rangers, our Forest School.

‘The ethos of Forest Schools is to allow children the time and space to develop skills, interest and understanding through a range of activities which provide practical, hands-on experiences in a natural environment.’

In January 2020 we started or exciting new adventure!


Every Thursday a class will go outside into the wooded area and enjoy the fabulous outdoors, come rain or shine!

The children will have the opportunity to have the freedom to explore the outdoors, make dens, build a bug hotel, maintain their outdoor area, use natural materials to make arts and crafts and many other things!

They will also learn to use tools to make items and cook over a camp fire!
