Introduction

At Forest we learn respect for each other, develop our community spirit and grow in self-confidence.

 
We believe that it is important to develop our pupils’ sense of community to help them take a positive and proactive place in society; it is equally important that as a school we share our expertise and resources, as well as a common sense of purpose, with our local community. 

We therefore place a strong emphasis on building close ties with our key stakeholders and playing a full and active role in the community.  Our pupils are involved in many community initiatives and projects, as well as fundraising for local charities and good causes.  

Our Community Outreach programme focuses on intergenerational projects such as our Silver Surfers IT course and Misterchef cooking course, where our pupils assist older members of the community to develop their IT and cooking skills. 

A strong emphasis is also placed on building relationships with local businesses and business professionals who regularly support our enrichment programme and curriculum teaching.  This vital link offers a unique opportunity for pupils develop their work life skills, whilst also developing their confidence in a business environment.
