Academic Success

Parents at Forest Preparatory School are very fortunate with the extensive choice of highly respected secondary schools available in the area and we aim to help them choose 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. A priority for Forest is to help guide and prepare our children for their future schools.

As a non-selective school, we are hugely proud of our success rates, with 81% of our pupils moving onto grammar schools since 2012. This is an outstanding achievement for all the children and staff involved.

The most popular destination for our leavers during this time is Altrincham Grammar School for Boys and Altrincham Girls Grammar School, followed by Sale Grammar School. Further significant destinations include; The Manchester Grammar School, St Ambrose College, Loreto Grammar School, Cheadle Hulme School, Manchester High School for Girls, Urmston Grammar School, North Cestrian and Wellington School.

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.
