Accreditations & Achievements

AQA Unit Awards,

Non Accredited Awards - PSHCE Awards,

Outdoor Forestry Environmental Unit Awards

All of our students  gain a real sense of achievement as their AQA Unit Award Certificates start arriving, everything from English, PSHCE, Art and Design, German, with a bit of Electrical  and biology work thrown in too… oh and animal care , music and the highway code!!

 Unit awards can often be related to an individuals interest, so they can gain certificates for sharing and producing work all based around their own hobbies and interests.

 We also received high praise from the AQA assessors about the quality of our students work

‘This was an excellent assessment, it was well organised, well presented and comprehensive…’


We have recently been asked if will be a case study highlighting how the Unit Awards scheme really builds are young peoples confidence and esteem, in such a wide range of topics.

We are so fortunate to be set in such an amazing tranquil but also inspiring environment.

Chestnut Woodlands lends itself to some of the GCSE practical work but also to many Forestry, Basic survival and Environment Unit awards.

We are so lucky that we have a qualified and highly experienced Forest school Leader to deliver some amazing out door learning, den building, cooking, plant and tree recognition not to mention super discussions covering human impact on our environment.
