Our Condolences



Members of the Forest Hill School community are grieving following the death of former Headteacher Peter Walsh. Pete was an inspirational leader who transformed Forest Hill and touched the lives of many students and  staff during a 34 year career at his only school. He will be deeply missed by us all. The community will work together to find a way to celebrate and commemorate Pete’s dedication to Forest Hill.

Anti-racism Resources

The murder of George Floyd must prompt careful reflection about racism in Britain today, and the extent to which it shapes our values, politics and economic life.

At Forest Hill School we condemn all acts of racism and violence and stand united in our commitment to challenge and tackle racism, address inequality and call out discrimination.
