Our mission

Our mission at Forest School is to provide an absolutely outstanding, distinct all-round education for 1,430 boys and girls aged 4-18yrs with excellent academic teaching and learning, superb pastoral care and extensive opportunities outside the classroom for pupils to learn and develop in individual ways.

The Warden, Marcus Cliff Hodges

What lies at the heart of a school is one of the things you want to discover when choosing an education for your child and we very much hope we can welcome you to Forest in the near future. In the meantime, here is a brief introduction from our Warden (Head) Marcus Cliff Hodges.

To get a flavour of the breadth and depth of opportunities we can offer your child, please click on any of the films below. These resources were created during the COVID-19 lockdown period and we hope they provide an insight into Forest’s ethos and strong sense of community and enable you to get a feel for the teachers who will be leading the school and looking after your child.
