Wilder Woods

Central Somerset Outdoor Learning Partnership



  • We set up in March 2007 as a constituted community run group and registered as charity in March 2013.
  • Our freelance Forest School leaders are members of the Forest School Association, the professional body for Forest Schools nationally. They are DBS checked, with Child Protection, Outdoor First Aid and Food Hygiene training updated regularly.
  • We have our own two small woods with compost toilets and shelters which are managed sustainably for wildlife as well as for forestry by our fabulous team of volunteers and the groups of young people who attend. Drayton Woods is wheelchair accesible
  • Our leaders are mobile. We are able to set up sessions anywhere suitable, subject to the necessary risk assessments and consents
  • We provide therapeutic interventions and long term placements for those struggling in school. We are a valuable link for young people interested in a career in forestry or related fields. We are a registered provider of the John Muir Award and young people can complete work experience log books and be entered for externally verified Youth Awards.
  • We operate an equal opportunities policy and involve young people in the delivery of our activities
  • We welcome volunteers of all abilities and ensure our events are inclusive. We offer support and training wherever funding permits
