Welcome to our cluster group

The Staffordshire Forest School Cluster Group is a growing network of individuals and organisations with an interest in forest-based education. 

We are a voluntary organisation and one of a number nationwide affiliated to the Forest Education Network (FEN) which promotes the educational use of woodlands and Forest Schools. The Forest Education Network (FEN) is the successor body to the Forest Education Initiative (FEI) in England and is be developed and run by the partnership of the Council for Learning Outside the Classroom (CLOtC) and Fiona Groves, the Natural Route.


Forest Schools as an innovative approach to learning and the development of social, emotional and life skills of young people in Staffordshire. The groups’ ambition is for every child in Staffordshire to have an entitlement to participate in a Forest School programme.


This website has been created with funding from Engie Flagship Fund and with contributions from many members of the group. This site is here to help you - please let us know of any forest school resources, up-coming training opportunities  or tips that you would like to share and we will do our best to post them up.
