Sylva Wood School Courses

The Sylva Wood School offers a prime location for learning and skills development, situated in the heart of the Oxfordshire countryside.

We offer excellent learning facilities in woodworking, forestry and rural management, outdoor learning, and other subjects. Courses are set among a thriving community of wood businesses at the Sylva Wood Centre, surrounded by an attractive treescape. Our dedicated Teaching Barn offers specialist learning space, while later in 2019 we will begin work on an additional building to provide more capacity to support long-term learning. The Sylva Wood Centre is just 5 miles from Didcot Parkway railway station and 10 miles from Oxford City.

"I can't think of anything that could have improved a perfect couple of days – I will be signing up for another one soon."

Gift vouchers are available for courses, providing a helpful discount for someone special. To find out more visit our shop
