Welcome to Forest Way

    At Forest Way our vision is simple: we want every learner to ‘Thrive at Forest Way’. We aim to promote and value every young person and your child will be placed at the heart of everything we do.​ We take pride in the strength of our school community and you as parents are an integral part of this. You know your child best and we believe that working together is the best way. Staff in our school have an immense knowledge and understanding of our young people and work with each individual to ensure they feel safe and happy in school. We ensure that we are aspirational and that we meet the holistic needs of our pupils and young people.

    We are all very proud of our school and would love to share what we do with you. I hope that this website gives you the information you need but please do not hesitate to give us a call if you would like further information.

    Best wishes

    Head Teacher
