The Forest School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of students and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.  All appointments are subject to an Enhanced Disclosure & Barring Service clearance being received.

The Forest School has been leading education since 1945 when it started its journey as a grammar school.  Many of the traditions and values are still at the heart of the school.

We are currently a boy’s secondary school that will be converting to co-educational study from September 2024, for students aged 11-18 with an existing co-educational 6th Form.  It is a vibrant community where students and staff learning and thrive together. Looking at the progress made across Wokingham, our 2023 results place The Forest in the top four schools, and third school for boys, in the Borough. We continue to beat the national average for boys' progress and attainment and look forward to what we can achieve when our girls receive their results in 2028.

The ethos of 'Aspire to become Elite' combined with character development ensure that Forest students leave us prepared for responsible adulthood taking with them principled values that will impact positively on their own lives and those of others to make for a better world.
