Forest School


John Matthews
Chairman of Governors

Over the last five years the School has spectacularly developed its facilities to extend teaching and learning opportunities across the site. Three projects have required an investment of £4m and have embraced our commitment to Excellence, Diversity, Community and Heritage to enhance every pupil’s experience at Forest School.

The Martin Centre for Innovation

Made possible by Old Forester, Anthony V Martin (Johnians 1948-1957), the building reflects in its architecture the School of 1834 and the School of today and is a strong statement of the School’s forward-looking dedication to excellence in education. 

New Science Department

The creation of a larger, state-of-the-art Science department supports the quality and ambition of Science teaching at Forest now and for many years to come.

Astroturf Pitch

The construction of the astroturf pitch on The Park has extended our ability to provide the all-round education on which we have always prided ourselves.

The School now plans to establish an endowment to fund bursaries into the future, vital in sustaining the diversity and opportunity so important to the School’s identity and values.

We very much hope that you will consider making a contribution to the important projects detailed here. If you have already made a donation, we are most grateful - and hope you will consider supporting us again. If you have not yet done so, we invite you most warmly to join our cause.

Thank you for supporting Forest School.
