Time for change…
The Treehouse School is an alternative, non fee paying primary school, where children’s happiness is paramount; where the curriculum is bespoke, designed around children’s needs and interests; where there is a commitment to outdoor learning and hands on experiences; where children are motivated and inspired; where all children are successful as individuality is valued; where respect for the environment and healthy lifestyles are honed…The Treehouse School.
We believe children are entitled to memorable and enjoyable Primary Years.
New School Eco-Build
The Treehouse Trust was created in 2011 by two former senior teachers aiming to create an alternative primary school in which children of all abilities and from all backgrounds would thrive.
In September 2012 against the odds and despite receiving no funding from the Government or through charging fees, the charity opened a unique primary school. The Treehouse School is not a government funded “Free School” and depends entirely on donations and volunteers. It is the first of its kind.
Due to its success and a constant stream of enquiries from parents seeking an improved alternative education for their children, the Trustees are now planning to expand through the construction of a new purpose-built eco school.

- Wild Challenge…To duplicate our excellent day in the woods you will need just 3 things: Bikes, a group of people ranging from 2 years to 70! and an interest in the natural world… With the Easter holidays on the horizon, you too might like to take part in the RSPB Wild Challenge. It certainly got the […]
- RIP Roald Dahl…Although he died some time ago, the Gang today paid homage to this great man, whose writing has inspired so many youngsters to get ‘stuck into’ reading. Our trip to Great Missenden, instigated by a parent and Trustee, was quite simply a delight. Our bevy of enthusiastic readers, relished the opportunity to find out more about his […]
- Spring Watch…What better way to welcome in Spring, than a day spent on the site of our new school? George from the RSPB joined us to show us how to make some nesting boxes… Tony joined us to hone our moth identification skills, before releasing them… After which we relished the time for some individual pursuits… Some group […]
