I would like to say that my time at Forest Prep School has been amazing and I hope that everyone that joins the school now and in the future has the same amazing experience that I have had.

Year 6 pupil

I am continuously impressed with my son’s academic and social development. The progress he's made in a short space of time is impressive and a credit to the quality and consistency of teaching and pastoral care.

Current Parent

It is hard to imagine walking in to the grounds of a more vibrant and happy school. Even before meeting any of the staff or children, there is a warmth to the atmosphere that exudes contentment, safety and success.

Current Parent

Forest Preparatory School is warm and welcoming and a great place to work. Every teacher knows every child by name and the sense of community is felt very strongly by the children, teachers and parents alike.
