Parents at Forest Preparatory School are most fortunate in the wide choice of highly respected secondary schools available in the area and we aim to help them chose the right school for their child.
Our curriculum goes beyond the demands of the National Curriculum. It is personally structured and, in the later years, there is a clear focus placed on the requirements of the Independent and State Grammar Schools entrance examinations at 11+. The curriculum remains broad and balanced with a continued emphasis on creativity, questioning, and independent thinking.
Our bench mark is the entrance examinations to the area's leading schools including Manchester Grammar School, Withington Girls' School, Altrincham Grammar School for Boys, Altrincham Grammar School for Girls and Sale Grammar.
A priority for Forest is to help guide and prepare our children for future schools. Alongside this we have Year Six GL Assessment papers externally marked, from which equivalent SATs scores are obtained. These scores form our end of Key Stage Two results, and, as a result, we are delighted to be the only school in Trafford to have gained a place on the Sunday Times top 100 Preparatory Schools' List for 2010/11 and 2012/13. Well done to all the staff and children for helping us to receive this accolade.

As you can appreciate, our pupils are the most important members of our school community. Further to the regular ongoing conversations we have with the pupils about their experience at school, Bellevue has developed an online survey to enable us to capture genuine pupil views. All pupils from Reception to Year 6 (151 children) recently completed the survey and the results are shown below.
