Welcome To The Forest School
Specialist College for Communication and Interaction
A place of friendship, respect and excellence
Welcome to our school website. Thank you for taking the time to look at what we do to support the learning of pupils with a Education and Health Care Plan from Early Years to Year 11 (3-16 years old).
Pupils join our school with a wide range of challenges in their lives. Presently we have children with …

Moderate Learning Difficulties
Severe Learning Difficulties
Complex Medical Difficulties
Downs Syndrome
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
Physical Difficulties
Hearing Impairment
… and 94% of our school population have Speech, Language and Communication Needs.

No two individuals are the same and at our school we make no judgements about the young people we work with. We invite them to come on a learning journey with us. We help them to arrive at a place where they are more comfortable with themselves, they are happy at home and society understands them and their needs.

Our aim is that the pupils become confident as individuals, responsible as citizens and successful as learners.

The school is a Specialist College for Communication and Interaction and this is a key aspect of the work we do.

We create a family type atmosphere in which everyone knows, respects and is tolerant of everyone else. Friendship, respect and excellence are at the heart of all that we do. We help young people to develop lasting friendships with their peers whilst sharing their learning journeys. We encourage all of our pupils to respect themselves and others as they strive for excellence in all that they do both academically and personally.

The sky is the limit for our pupils in terms of what they can achieve and the school does all that it can to enable everyone to reach their full potential.
