I am very grateful to Prince Harry and the Wilderness Project for affording our pupils this exceptional opportunity. It was a truly wonderful experience for them all to meet a member of the royal family who has such a passion for outdoor education and mental well-being, two of the things we value extremely highly at Felsted, with our own Forest School and Well Being Centre. He engaged with our pupils with real empathy for the project they were undertaking, asking their opinions and checking on their well-being.

He was so friendly and funny and got really involved in building our dens. He asked me about bush craft and whether I had slept in a den, like he had done as a child.
Harry, Year 7 Felsted Prep.
We were talking about leaving a trace in the environment and I told him about my concern for rubbish. He really listened and understood my thoughts and wanted to ask what we did as a family to combat it. He was so kind and he really seems to care.
Jess, Year 7 Felsted Prep.
I told Prince Harry about our Global Gang project at school and how we are trying to reduce electricity usage. He really encouraged us to continue with our work both at school and at home.
Halle, Year 7 Felsted Prep
