About Forest School

Forest is an outstanding all-round School, well known for its friendly, welcoming ethos, and full of 1450 bright sparky pupils aged 4-18. We are lucky to be located in this part of North East London, allowing us to attract pupils from a diverse range of social and ethnic backgrounds who share in being academically ambitious, but are grounded, engaging and very loyal to the School. Described by the Good Schools Guide as a ‘powerhouse with a heart’ and enjoying a reputation for strong expert teaching and learning, Forest pupils are encouraged to find success on all fronts through the breadth of the opportunities on offer to them.

We aim to develop the whole pupil through our distinct educational provision which gives equal weight to academic, co-curricular and pastoral strands of school life. To this end, Forest promotes all-round educational excellence, recognising that advancement to higher education or the world of work requires top academic grades but keen to develop a sense of service in the pupils and an awareness of their responsibilities to other people, as well as themselves. Forest is recognised as a school that is always evolving, self-evaluating and planning strategically for its future, while valuing its heritage and its location, all of which makes our community a stimulating one to work in for our 150+ teachers and 100+ non-teaching staff.

What people say about us

You inspire a pupil to speak a language, play a sport and be part of a band, all in the same day. These become experiences to share with that pupil for years to come.
