Pride in Belonging
We believe that uniform is important in contributing to the ethos of the school and in setting an appropriate tone. It supports positive behaviour and discipline; encourages identity with, and support for, The Forest High School.
We are pleased to announce that our new uniform supplier is Universal Uniform who are based in Cheltenham. Orders can be placed online, by telephone or by visiting their own shop.
All of the uniform is available to order via Universal Uniform except for Key Stage 4 school ties which are available directly from school only via ParentPay.
We have a limited supply of smaller size uniform in school for sale directly by school via ParentPay (smaller and larger blazers and school jumpers mainly at reduced prices).
All uniform should be clearly marked with the student’s name.
