Forest School is coming to Kirkstall Valley Farm

Fun at Kirkstall Valley Farm.

By Kirsty Ward

Kirkstall Valley Development Trust is very excited to be working with Forest School Leaders from our community to bring affordable forest school sessions to Kirkstall Valley Farm.

They are all very busy developing the space and gathering resources ready to start very soon.  They will be working with Little Trees Forest School who will offer pre-school sessions on a Monday morning and Leodis Forest School will be running some school and holiday sessions for primary school aged pupils.

There will be a taster day on the 4 April for seven-to-11-year-olds and plan to have the other sessions running after the Easter holidays.  It is an exciting new partnership, and we are all passionate about bringing this opportunity to the children of Kirkstall. 

Kirkstall Valley Farm has already gained a great reputation in the area for our pre-school farm sessions and school holiday playschemes. It already had classes from all the local primary schools visiting last summer and they hope to build on this further this year with even more children being able to enjoy this amazing natural outdoor environment on our doorstep.

Home Education Group sessions are also ready to start up again and will now run every other week in term time. Kirkstall Valley Explorer Tots will be back down on the farm on Tuesdays too!

All the details will be available soon on the KVDT booking site at or for more information, email  If you would be interested in volunteering with any of our children and family events, please get in touch.

Volunteers are looking forward to welcoming you back to the farm!
