Welcome from the Headteacher

I am honoured and delighted to be the new Headteacher of The Forest High School.

We are now almost two years into the COVID-19 pandemic.  The challenges it has caused young people and the pressures it has placed on schools show no signs of easing any time soon.  Our students’ safety and wellbeing will always be my overwhelming priority.  But I am determined that the challenges and pressures of the pandemic do not stop your children getting the best teaching, the best support and the best opportunities.

I have been a teacher for more than twenty years and Headteacher of two successful secondary schools, both of which I helped become popular with local families and inclusive of all students.

I live in Cardiff with my husband, our two adopted children and our dog. My family are very important to me and inspire me every day.  I am really looking forward to getting to know you all and working with you to make this the best school it can possibly be.
