My first week at The Forest...28th September 2021
We asked a few of new Year 7 students what their first week at The Forest was like, and this is what they told us...
"My first week at The Forest was amazing! I loved all of the subjects, especially the teachers. My favourite 5 subjects are: PE, History, English, Art and Maths. My tutor is brilliant she is always and happy and fun. The food at The Forest School is delicious especially the cheese and ham panini’s. I have made loads of new friends and I can’t wait to see where my future goes with this amazing school."
"My first week at The Forest was very enjoyable because I made lots of new friends and met up with some from my old school—I like it".
"My first week at The Forest was amazing! Every single person that I met welcomed me and supported me. I really enjoyed the food and the three 100 minute lessons instead of 6 lessons. My form tutor is amazing and every morning when I come in she is the only person who can start my day properly, ready for what lies ahead. All my teachers that I have had have been excellent and I have especially enjoyed: History, PE, Food and English".
"My first week was amazing and I made lots of friends. The first few days I was nervous about the lessons but I’m now okay. The teachers are kind and my form tutor, Mrs Briggs, is amazing! I have enjoyed all the lessons and the canteen food is amazing and delicious".
"My first week was really nice and not that bad. I was really dreading it because over the holidays I had a lot to do at home to keep me busy but, when I came to school I really like it—it’s like its my new happy place. I like school, I really do".
"My first week at The Forest was good. I like PE and Maths. There are a lot of things to do in school, and a lot of school clubs after school. I also like art because I get to learn new things".
"My first week of Forest, for me, was absolutely amazing! My favourite subjects are: Art, History and Music because the teachers for those subjects are really kind, nice and helpful. Also, my form tutor is just the best! I really liked English as well because I liked studying The Northern Lights book and Mr Skidmore is really awesome. Something I’m really proud of is getting into the top set of Maths with Mr McNeil. I have made lots of new friends".
"My first week the Forest was fun and I liked it a lot. I found the homework quite hard but I enjoyed History with Mr Jordan because he is a nice teacher and I like learning about History. Making a fruit salad with Mrs Briggs in Food Tech was also lots of fun. I liked art because I think I’m quite good a drawing and the teachers was very nice too".
