Westbourne House at Running Wild Forest School

"We organised our first set of forest sessions for our oldest pre-school children with Running Wild. These took place this Summer Term (2017) and were a fantastic success. The children developed many skills, had the opportunity to explore new experiences, overcame exciting challenges, and grew in confidence week by week. We are very much looking forward to working together next year"
