Forest is a well-rounded, happy, busy school offering excellent academic provision and a full range of co-curricular opportunities, with almost 1350 boys and girls from 4 – 18. We believe that our combination of single-sex and mixed educational opportunities – the diamond structure – gives our pupils the best of all worlds. They thrive on it.

Within the Prep School and Senior School, the Form and House system means that pupils are looked after in small units of care. In the Pre-Prep (4 – 7) and Sixth Form (16 – 18), boys and girls are taught together, but between the ages of 7 and 16 pupils are taught in separate classes, to maximise the benefits of single-sex teaching for children of that age.

Life is not a single-sex environment, however, and a child’s social development involves learning to form relationships with a wide range of people. This is where Forest’s diamond structure comes into its own.

Outside the classroom, for example, boys and girls of all ages mix in a wide range of co-curricular activities; brothers and sisters share the same school in a way that single-sex teaching would otherwise preclude.

We benefit from a tremendous location, a city school with thirty acres of grounds surrounded by ancient forest here on the very edge of London, all creating a wonderfully diverse community for our pupils that we are very proud of.
