Welcome to The Forest Academy
s the Principal of the Forest Academy since May 2010, it is an honour to serve our local community in ensuring all of our young people thrive at school. We are on a journey of rapid improvement as part of the BMAT Trust, and I am very fortunate to have such talented staff and students working with me; every person in the school is a key part of our community, starting with the youngest in Year 7, as they begin their seven year journey in school, right through to year 13, where they will embark on their journey into the world as young, confident adults.
Our school supports, encourages and challenges every individual to be the very best that they can be and we are rightly ambitious for their aspirations and achievements. We want all to have the personal qualities, skills, experience and qualifications to be a success in the next stage of their life. Our fundamental belief is that each student only gets one chance of secondary education and we must make it the very best it can be. The school is a uniquely welcoming environment, of which all are proud.
