COVID-19 Notice

From Monday 15th June school has extended its offer to Year 10 and Year 12 students.  This is in controlled daily numbers and on a rotating basis, in line with government directives about numbers on site at any one time.  Parents/carers of students will have received detailed information about when their son(s) attend school, and comprehensive plans to maintain social distancing and general hygiene measures, all in accordance with government advice.  

Provision continues to be offered to vulnerable children and those of critical workers, from 10am to 2pm daily (registration is required – please contact school for further information if you haven’t already completed a form). 

Unfortunately, other Year Groups are not able to return to school for the time being – they will continue to receive work remotely through our various online platforms.

Black Lives Matter

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.
