Nature-Based Curriculum & Democratic Ethos

 Our School of Curiosity runs for two full days per week at Rockaway Park (Mondays & Tuesdays), offering inspiration and opportunities for children to explore in the classroom, the community forest garden and the nearby woods and quarry. They also have access to the on-site workshops and spaces, where the expertise of musicians, performers, artists & craftspeople can be drawn upon. 


Our school is an example of what Rockaway does best - doing traditional things in alternative ways and passing on valuable skills in ethical practice and sustainability, which will equip children with the skills they will need in the future.


For a preview of what children experience, take a look at this trailer on our YouTube channel.



Led by our amazing teacher, Angela Hill (BA Hons, PGCE, MA) founder of Curiositree – Forest School of Arts & Science, the school's ethos is that creativity, collaboration and kindness are central to grow and learn. Our School of Curiosity focuses on developing a lifelong pleasure in learning, whether solving problems, expressing ourselves, functioning in collaboration with others or making ethical or practical decisions.


We see and hear all our pupils, ensuring that they're able to develop their interests and skills, build their confidence and become resilient, happy individuals. 

For children aged 8 - 12, and with any educational or special need catered for.

Costs are on a sliding scale depending on income to make it as affordable as possible.
