Learning inspired by nature, the freedom to play

and the magic of adventure.


Based in beautiful Teesdale, Bright Woods Forest School CIC is a Community Interest Company that offers unique outdoor learning experiences for children of all ages across south and west County Durham, Darlington and surrounding areas of North Yorkshire.


Forest School is an ethos that encourages child led outdoor learning, fostering the spirit of independence and adventure. Children experience the natural world through play, developing confidence and self-esteem.


Bright Woods Forest School CIC believes that children who are given the freedom to play in the outdoors and get dirty and wet are simply happy children. Such children are more fulfilled, less prone to stress and depression and more connected to the world around them.


Our non-for-profit Community Interest Company works with nurseries, primary and secondary schools, home educators, community groups, families, youth groups, voluntary organisations and individuals.


Our offer includes Forest Schools programmes, Toddler and Home Education groups, Curriculum linked Outdoor Education sessions, Book Walks, Minecraft inspired Wildcraft Adventure, Woodland Birthday Parties, Events and tailor-made Team Building days.
