People are at the heart of our organisation
Our leadership team come from a range of social backgrounds, but all have the same set of values and common beliefs, and together are a powerful force. We fully recognise the power of our people to drive the organization forward. Everybody contributes, in various ways, to the experience we deliver. We value each individual’s contribution, encouraging everyone to reach their full potential.
Our people achieve more by working collaboratively to reach common goals and by working responsibly under their own initiative, they join together to deliver the forest school adventure and experience to the highest standard.
Managing Director / SkyeLight Practitioner / EFL Practitioner
Sarah is the driving force behind Horwood Coombe Forest School.
Sarah grew up on the Heywood family farm in North Devon, and developed a love for wildlife and the outdoors from an early age – particularly horses as she went on to become an accomplished Event rider.
Sarah passionately felt that everyone should benefit from this, in particular those that were less able bodied or had emotional or behavioral difficulties and that their idea could be of benefit to the wider community, and not just for those attending the forest school. It was important for her to ensure they gave a leg up to those who for whatever reason find themselves struggling for employment and at a dead end, like she herself had been. So the forest school was established as a Community Interest Company with a focus on helping the local and wider community and has been a flying success right from the start!
SkyeLight Programme Director / EFL Practitioner / SkyeLight Practitioner / Food Programme Director
As a sports coach for both riding and rugby I have always been interested in finding new ways to motivate people and to help them perform at their very best. I believe that we all should be given the chance whoever we are and whatever our background is.
I enjoy massively working with our EFL and SkyeLight skills to educate in such a way that a persons’ well-being is vastly improved no matter what their situation is.
Outside of work I encourage my children to be who they want to be, have fun with them and for myself, when circumstances allow, my passion is Eventing.
