Head's welcome

Welcome to Forest Preparatory School.

At Forest we believe that we have found a perfect balance in pursuing academic excellence whilst at the same time maintaining strong pastoral care standards.

We strongly believe that if a child is happy they will learn and if they have a sound and efficient framework within which to work they will thrive.

Every child is made to feel important and valued by all concerned and through this atmosphere of collaboration, success is achieved.

As one parent recently wrote “We were looking for a well-balanced school where boys and girls would be encouraged to work hard and play hard. We found this at a vibrant little place called Forest.”

Forest Prep nurtures its pupils to become confident, secure, caring individuals who achieve personal success and develop a love of learning.

The School provide a happy, stimulating and well-disciplined environment, and encourage each child to reach their full potential and strive for excellence in all areas of school life. Staff believe in developing pupils’ self-esteem so that they have the confidence to use their individual talents, skills and knowledge effectively and leave Forest equipped to be lifelong learners.

The School values the partnership which exists between school, parents and community and the part it plays in realising this vision.
