We are a forest school based on the outskirts of Shepton Mallet.  Shepton is part of the East Mendip Hills in Somerset. We are a non-profit making community group. 

We aim to encourage and inspire individuals of any age through positive outdoor experiences and give the opportunity to play, develop useful skills and form a positive awareness of nature.

Holly & Hawthorn are now an FSA Recognised Forest School Provider.
Our Forest School aims to provide regular opportunities to achieve, as well as develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experiences in a woodland environment.
