    Here at Upton, we are passionate about outdoor learning and we are very lucky with our amazing grounds and facilities. We have been fortunate to be able to secure a plot of land on Upton to extend our Forest School provision. This will provide a real and secure woodland environment for our children to explore. We have been working with The Land Trust in an exciting collaboration to make this project happen. We are extremely excited about the opportunities that this is going to provide for the children and will be opening our new Forest School on Firday 10th January......a great start to 2017.
