House membership is an intrinsic part of being a pupil at Forest Prep School. Our 4 co-educational House groups, Bardell’s, Doctor’s, Johnians and Poole’s, offer a chance to explore leadership and to discover what it is like to work as part of a larger team, a team with pupils ranging in age from 4 to 11.
Led by members of the teaching and non-teaching staff, each House has boy and girl captains and spend a lot of time together to develop the ethos of their house. House competitions such as Music, Drama, Art and a myriad array of sporting choices, certainly bring out the competitive streak in our children and, most importantly of all, leads to the awarding each term of the House Cup for academic success and for good behaviour.
It is all done with a great sense of fun, enjoyment and belonging – truly demonstrating what it is to be a Young Forester.
