Craigievar School was one of the first schools in Scotland to become a Forest School. We are so fortunate to have a wonderful forest, owned by the National Trust, just a short walk up the hill behind the school. Since 2008, the children have been visiting the forest on a regular basis for outdoor learning. We try and have a Forest School session at least once a term, but we are also very lucky that we have our own wildlife garden and outdoor learning area within the school grounds (see section on Wildlife Garden).
Update: Sadly, Storm Arwen in November 2021 and Storm Malik in February 2022 caused considerable damage to the woodland where we hold our Forest School. The National Trust have asked us not to use the site until it has been cleared and made safe. Work is progressing on clearing the site and we hope to be back up to the Forest in the 2022-23 Session.
