Applying to The Forest School
The application process and information for moving from primary to secondary school is managed by Wokingham Borough Council.
As a stand-alone academy we manage our own in-year admissions process. Please download the In-Year Admissions Application here.
Our published admission number, or PAN as it is commonly referred to, for 2021-22 is 210. The PAN is the number of pupils in each year group that the admission authority has agreed will be admitted without causing problems for the school. To view The Forest School Admissions Policy click here
