The Curriculum

Forest has a broad curriculum that promotes academic excellence while also pushing pupils to discover their own potential and abilities, recognising that there are different paths to success.

Games & The Arts

Forest pupils can choose anything from horse-riding to chess, technology to debating, drama and a wide range of musical activities to some of the best of sporting offerings.

Pastoral Care

Our goal is to produce well-rounded young men and women who become the very best versions of themselves and then go on to make a difference in the world beyond Forest.

Recent University Places

Destination universities for 2019 include Oxbridge, Colorado, London’s Institute in Paris; Royal College of Music and all the Russell group universities.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

Forest is an open-minded school with both feet on the ground, in which the pupils’ all-round personal development is outstanding and academic attainment is high. It is, above all, a happy school which understands the rich inter-relationship between the curricular, the co-curricular and the pastoral.

Outstanding Characteristics

Forest benefits from a tremendous location: surrounded by ancient forest but situated within a wonderfully diverse part of North-East London with 30 acres of grounds
