The diamond structure enables us to take advantage of the many positive characteristics of a small school while benefiting from the infrastructure and feel of a much larger school.
Pupils in the Preparatory and Senior schools are attached to boys’ and girls’ Houses which allows us to cater to the specific needs of boys and girls.
Pupils at Forest are split into 14 single sex Houses. These Houses provide a wonderfully supportive environment. Each House has a Housemistress/master and individual Tutors for each year group, Y7-Y13 inclusive. Our House structure lays the firmest foundation for the success of our pupils by building confidence and resilience throughout their Forest journey. At the end of their time at the School, our pupils leave as mature young adults who seek challenges and aim high.
Our pupils love their Houses! They develop bonds with their peers and teachers, and thoroughly enjoy House Meetings and House Competitions, including Art, Dance, Drama, MasterChef, Music, Sport. The Houses help cultivate a sense of pride, loyalty and belonging from the very start of their Forest lives.
