About Us

Hello and welcome to Flat Pack Forest School.

We provide Forest School sessions to schools in and around the Black Country. We also run fantastic public sessions during school holidays at our site on Kinver Edge.

Flat Pack Forest School was founded by Henry Gunn, a Level Three qualified Forest School Leader with a passion for enabling children and young people to access the benefits of Forest School. Not everyone learns in the same way and by being allowed a small amount of time each week away from the classroom learners can gain many benefits such as, improved focus and behaviour, increased resilience and compassion for nature.

As a member of the Forest Schools Association Flat Pack Forest School strives to adhere to the six principles of forest school in all our work. We work in partnership with other Forest School providers and local and National organisations such as Opentrail, The Riverside House Trust and the National Trust all of which believe in enabling children and young people to achieve their potential through experiencing the natural environment.

So, do you love being immersed in the wilderness? Then you will love Forest School. During our sessions you will be invited into our own secluded corner of woodland on Kinver Edge to experience life, the outdoors way. You will have the opportunity to build shelters, used tools both modern and ancient, use traditional methods to create fire (and cook yummy treats), learn a little about our ancient past and how it can guide our future, and most importantly have a load of fun.


Come rain or shine the forest is an important place for us to connect with. Just like we have for thousands of years. Come along and feel the benefits of immersion in the natural world.

Short Forest Sessions

For the 2024 summer season we are trying a different style of sessions in a new site. We are going to be running short sessions focused on a deep dive in to one aspect of outdoor skills. These will include session based around fire lighting and safety, cooking, foraging and woodland tool use and safety plus more.

These sessions will be one hour and available most weeks during school holidays.

So come along and become a forest native.
