At Forest Preparatory School we value the importance of developing strong links between the school and the local and wider community. Within PSHE and Citizenship education, through assemblies, concerts, class visits and special events, we encourage the children to appreciate the roles and responsibilities of active citizens.
To achieve this we enlist the support of the local and wider community in supporting the curriculum and wide variety of extra-curricular activities on offer at Forest. These include liaising with many outside agencies including Chester University, the Police Force, NHS, Jewish Association, Manchester City FC, The Toy Appeal (Knutsford), Manchester Airport and many more. Furthermore, Forest Preparatory School also prides itself on the charity fundraising work within the community that continues throughout the year.
Forest Preparatory School has close ties with Timperley Sports Club, where our weekly games sessions are held, as well as many of the school's sporting tournaments. The school choir visits the Bridgewater Hall and Manchester Arena on a bi-annual basis and we take part in a Christmas Carol Service held in Manchester Cathedral and a Bellevue Music Festival is hed every other spring at the Royal Norhtern College of Music. A highlight of the year is the Upper School Summer Show that takes place annually at The Little Theatre in Altrincham.
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.
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.
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.
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.
