The Outdoor Classroom

IwoodThe Outdoor Classroom (ODC) is an area of woodland within Queens’ School site which is used for a wide range of learning opportunities.  The area is managed by a fully qualified Forest School Leader who is supported by the schools Estates Team and team of teaching staff.  Many of the trees are well established, native broad-leaf trees which have decades of growth; they serve as great structures, with their shapes and shadows creating a sense of wonder for inspired learning.  More recently, staff, students and a local scout group have planted well over 200 trees.  Some will be used for hedging but others have been planted in circles, in the hope that one day they will provide some exciting places for students to learn.
