Forest School

The Forest School is a special school for pupils aged between 3 and 16 who have a range of learning difficulties. These include moderate and severe learning difficulties, autistic spectrum difficulties, physical problems, language and communication difficulties.  It has been in Knaresborough for over 40 years but is not widely known in the area.

My visit for volunteer week isn’t the first time I’ve been to Forest School but it is the first time I’ve mucked in with the teachers and pupils.

It is a fantastic place; it was an inspiring visit.  I helped the teachers and children with various activities and it really brought home the dedication of the teachers as they deal with some challenging situations and the enthusiasm of the children.
