About us

Forest & Beach is a limited company and a social enterprise*. We offer curriculum-linked outdoor learning and environmental education to children and schools across the UK, and we have a clear environmental and social mission. Based on an organic farm set a mile from the beach at Beesands, we offer a range of educational activities ranging from Forest School, Beach School, River Study Days, Farm visits, agricultural education and bespoke educational packages. Please see our page on 'What we do' for further information about our work.

Our mission

In today's society, where technology takes centre-stage, children and adults are increasingly losing touch with nature and becoming unsure of how to interact with it. Forest & Beach aims to reconnect people with nature in a way that's creative, engaging and fun. Through the exploration of our fabulous natural environment, we offer practical, hands-on experience to inspire others to achieve and learn.

Who we are

As primary school teachers for the last 18 years, we are passionate about learning, and in particular we are passionate about learning outdoors. We are fortunate to live and work in a fantastic area of the UK which we would like to share with children and adults alike!

Our location

*Forest & Beach is run as a "social enterprise". This means that once payments, including wages, have been made then profits are put back into the business - to further our remit of connecting children and adults with nature. We are a business and not a charity, but we have a clear environmental and social mission.
