Headteacher's message

“Forest Hill School offers a curriculum of great breadth that includes Dance, Drama, Art and Music alongside the traditional academic subjects, as well as a wide range of opportunities outside the classroom. Our dedicated teaching staff are passionate about their subjects and are experts in educating and inspiring boys to achieve excellence, no matter what their aptitudes and abilities. We are delighted that so many of our students gain places at the elite Russell Group universities and Oxbridge, as well as other prestigious institutions. We also pride ourselves on the quality of our pastoral support and provide a house system which plays a pivotal role in establishing the strong community identity and caring ethos of the school.”
