“Finding Puck” – Enchanting Lower School Play

Did you enjoy the search for Puck, one of Shakespeare’s naughtiest creatures, in Forest’s production of “Finding Puck?”

Our Lower School pupils in Years 7, 8 and 9 dedicated themselves to preparing for this magical play, for guests to enter the world of Titania and Oberon’s mystical Forest.

This enchanting performance celebrates the essence of inclusivity that defines Forest School!

At Forest School, we strive to create an inclusive environment where every individual – pupils, staff, parents and carers – feels a sense of belonging and is empowered to be their authentic selves. We believe that “Finding Puck” resonates deeply with our beautifully diverse school community, as it explores themes of identity, wellbeing and mental health, diversity, community, belonging, environmental consciousness, friendship, and the celebration of true inclusion.

Take a sneak peek here to see some of our woodland spirits searching for Puck.

As you witness the journey of our characters, consider how their experiences mirror our own pursuit of a more inclusive and equitable world. The team is proud to present this production as a reflection of our shared commitment to embracing diversity and fostering understanding. So, in a forest, within a ‘Forest’ (how very Shakesperean…) let’s all experience the magic of searching of the infamous and mischievous Puck!

As part of the Lower School play we had a ‘pre-show’ event in the Upper library where our Year 7, scholars band (The Forest Funksters) played some excellent Jazz music and Miss Mitchell ran a workshop of mindful stencilling using paint made from onion skins. Below is a picture of some of her eco printed cards and textiles alongside The Forest Funksters!
