When is a school not just a school? . . . When it's a Forest School!


We call ourselves the East Lothian Forest School and we have been delivering weekly sessions, and special Saturday and Holiday Clubs at Yellowcraig Wood, near Direlton, for quite some time.

We specialise in organising a whole range of activities - from the making of dens, the cooking on open fires to the creation of clay minibeasts. We are particularly keen to engage the childrens' attention to the sounds and sights - and the delights - of the woodland environment and the natural world. We know from our own experience that children benefit enormously from being outdoors participating in these activities.


We cater primarily for four to nine year old children but are more than happy to accommodate other age groups as well as children of mixed abilities.


We hope you will allow your children to join us . . . perhaps you will do so yourself! The one thing we can guarantee is that you will thoroughly enjoy yourselves.
