An outstanding Pre-School and Forest Club in the Heart of the Chew Valley

About us

Bishop Sutton Pre-School and Forest Club has been operating in the heart of our Chew Valley village for more than forty years. We are lucky to be part of a beautiful area and we take every opportunity to allow the children to explore and flourish in their community.

With a spacious schoolroom, and two outdoor play areas, our Outstanding-rated Pre-School and Forest Club can offer children the space to run around, learn, play and explore while parents can rest assured that their children are safe, secure and most importantly, happy. On Thursday mornings, our Outstanding-rated Forest Club celebrates the rain, sun or snow and embarks upon an adventure into the forest. Our children explore and discover within our “forest” — the conservation area of Bishop Sutton Primary School. Both our Pre-School and Forest Club have been rated Outstanding by Ofsted in 2015.

Bishop Sutton Pre-School & Forest Club is a charitable organisation registered with the Charity Commission for England and Wales (number 1172849). It is run by a committee of dedicated and committed parents who organise fundraising events to support and promote the Pre-School & Forest Club. We are incredibly lucky to have a team of highly qualified and passionate staff. They take great pride and joy in making sure your child has the most rewarding, educational and exciting time when at Bishop Sutton Pre-School & Forest Club.
