Forest School coming in 2020

As parents will know, Barnardiston Hall has always prided itself on giving children a real countryside education with emphasis on using our wonderful outdoor space.

We are, therefore, delighted to announce that, with effect from September 2020, Barnardiston Hall will be opening its own Forest School’. Mrs Bagley has started her formal training, both academic and practical and she can now light a fire without using matches as well as being able to make her own tools!

We know that the children are going to love Forest School and we will update you during the year on our progress.
