"The school’s strong ethos promotes harmony amongst the different ethnic, religious and linguistic communities from which its pupils are drawn.” – Ofsted
Welcome from the Head
It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the website of Forest Hill School.
We continue to be incredibly popular and regularly oversubscribed due to the high quality education we provide for our young people. Our curriculum equips every student with the strengths of a traditional academic base coupled with the skills required for success in an ever-more rapidly changing world. The personal development of all is extremely important to us, with myriad opportunities both within and outside of the curriculum available to our boys. The Performing Arts specialism of the school further enhances this, allowing all students to experience the thrill of performance, and the boost to self-esteem this provides. Forest Hill students’ experience enables them to secure enviable prospects and emerge as leaders of the future.
The diverse and fully inclusive school community is totally reflective of that around us. Forest Hill is a genuine all-ability community school – our ethos is tangible. The traditional House system ensures that every student is known and valued. It actively promotes tolerance and celebrates diversity as a strength, tackling discrimination in all its forms.
SFH6, our joint Sixth Form provision with Sydenham School, goes from strength to strength. The excellent outcomes have secured an increasing number of places for our students on a diverse range of degree courses at Russell Group Universities and Oxbridge.
As a restorative school we pride ourselves on the strength of relationships between all members of the school. These underpin our cohesive community, helping provide a calm and ordered learning environment. This in turn is the foundation for innovative and rigorous learning experiences, which ultimately deliver our excellent outcomes.
Forest Hill School is a special place and it is an honour to be its Headteacher. If this website whets your appetite and you would like to learn more please do not hesitate to get in touch.
