Age suitability

Sessions are aimed at children aged 4 and above.

Bring your children down to Oxhey Woods for fun at Forest School.
Parents/carers join in with the session, as children are introduced to the wonders of the forest through play, song, story telling, craft and practical skills.

What will happen in the session?

Have fun in the woods with your family learning how to build and light a fire using different methods. Can you travel with an ember and use it to relight your fire?

What to wear?
At Forever Green Forest School, we believe that there is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothes! The session will take place in most weathers, so come prepared wearing layers, waterproof coats and long trousers, hats, suncream and some waterproof wellies or walking boots.

Meeting Point

Park in the car park by the Sculpture Trail. Enter the Woods by the green kissing gate and take the right hand path. You will pass a wooden fairy house. When the path reaches a fork, take the left hand path. You will see a clearing on the right where our tarp shelter will be. The address is as follows: Oxhey Drive South, Northwood, HA6 3EX.

If you are late or get lost, please call Emma on 07900 215512 and we will come to find you.

Toilet facilities

There are no toilet facilities in the woodland, but we will provide a small camping portaloo for emergencies. There is no running water and so the only hand washing facilities will be soap and water that we will provide.


We will provide you with a warm drink and a snack during the session. Please make sure we are aware of any allergies on your participant information form to allow us to cater for everyone.


Car parking is free for 2 hours, but spaces are limited  in Oxhey Wood carpark. If you are unable to find a space, please find parking on nearby roads.
