Enthusiastic early-years practitioners and primary teachers passionate about outdoor learning and holistic development are encouraged to sign up for the recruitment morning to discover all The Forest at Merchiston has to offer. 

Attendees will be taken on a guided tour of the stunning 100-acre wooded campus, discover The Forest’s innovative, child-centred curriculum, and hear from Headteacher Davina Bowers, about the unparalleled educational offering The Forest Nursery and Junior School will deliver.
