Reaching Out Beyond The White Gates

The Warden, together with Forest’s new Director of Outreach, Mrs Adela Kay, attended a meeting in Westminster this week to celebrate cross-sector partnerships between independent and state school partnerships. Speaking at the event, Justine Greening MP demonstrated the Government’s support for the thousands of partnership projects currently taking place which benefit so many state pupils as well as independent school pupils.

Forest believes whole-heartedly in such schemes and Mrs Kay’s appointment signals the School’s wish to widen our interactions with the community building on our existing commitment which fosters an ethos of social awareness with staff and pupils whilst engaging in more collaborative learning. As Mr Cliff Hodges reiterates: ‘Broadening horizons, increasing confidence and encouraging recognition of responsibilities to others all lie firmly at the heart of a Forest education.’
