Welcome to Brambles Forest Schools

Brambles Forest Schools is owned and run by Luke and Kate Williamson. A husband and wife team who are Level 3 Forest School Leaders, CRB enhanced  and First Aid Qualified Practitioners. Luke’s employment background is in the outdoor environment. Luke is a fully qualified outdoor pursuit’s instructor, teaching young people in East London mountain biking, kayaking, canoeing and rock climbing.  Kate also owns and runs a chain of children’s day nurseries in London’s Canary Wharf. Kate is a qualified Nursery Practitioner with over 20 years’ experience working with children under the age of 8 years. As a family with two young children the Williamson’s enjoy walks in Epping Forest and the beaches in North Norfolk. Forest School offers both Luke and Kate an opportunity to expand on their personal interest in the outdoors and nature. 

At Brambles you will get two fully qualified level 3 Forest School Leaders at every session for groups over 10 children included in the price. We believe in high ratio of learner to leader. This enables the FSL’s to observe and reflect on each sessions making planning and feedback easier. The children and young people have a greater chance to experience the wonders of Forest School with two fully qualified leaders at each session.

Before any booking is taken Luke or Kate will meet with you to discuss your needs and view your grounds, make a note of any possible issues and do a mini risk assessment of the site. At this meeting you can see Brambles policies, previous work carried out and examples of plans for sessions. All of this is free of charge.

If after this you are still unsure whether Forest School is for you, we are happy to run a free 1 hour taster session to convince you! This will be carried out at a mutually convenient time.
