Welfare

A safe and nurturing environment

Outstanding teaching and learning opportunities for all students is our number one priority.

Starting secondary school can be a daunting experience and in recognition of this we have a safe play area dedicated to Year 7 student with target walls, large hard court games area, a health circuit, large grassed areas and a large covered space with seating. An array of equipment is made available for their use during recreation periods.

The library is open throughout the day for reading, research including Internet access and for our homework club after school each afternoon.

Exciting new vocational offer

The Forest High School has teamed up with some of the best education providers in the county to launch an innovative curriculum and strengthen the academic performance for all students.

In addition to The Forest High School courses, which prepare students for access to post-16 A’ level pathways, our sponsors SGS will provide the widest vocational provision in the county for students in Years 10 and 11 who wish to follow a less academic post-16 route.

Wellbeing

ChatHealth – the texting service offered by the School Nursing team

This is a confidential way that 11-19yr olds can have a text conversation with one of our school nurses about any health issue, worry or concern they may have. When schools are shut and students don’t have their usual pastoral support, this service can be of great benefit to allay anxieties and emotional distress.

In addition there is information and guidance for students on the School Nursing Webpage.
