Branch Out Education

Our mission is to create opportunities for children, young people and adults to connect with the natural world and each other - developing social, emotional, intellectual and physical well-being through activities and experiences in a woodland setting.

Branch Out Education CIC promotes physical and mental wellbeing through friendly community events, Forest school and bespoke outdoor learning programmes for schools and groups. Sessions may include campfire cooking, games, crafts, music and singing, stories, imaginative play, building, exploring and using simple tools.


Our Woodland Site

We are very lucky to have a beautiful and varied woodland to explore.

The 55 acres of land belongs to Helen's family and was originally bought by her grandfather who ran a tree nursery and created a series of ponds there. The woodland is now used for firewood production (Birkmere Woodlands).
