Our school intake is 210 students per year group across Year 7 to Year 11.

Prospective parents and students are very welcome to visit Forest Hill School at one of our Open Events during the Autumn Term. Under normal circumstances, these events give families the opportunity to meet the Headteacher and see the school in action on a normal school day. However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, we will be hosting virtual open events in 2020.

Forest Hill School also holds Year 5 Taster Days in the Summer Term ahead of the open events and applications for secondary school in the Autumn Term.
