Updated Dress code policy May 2016

As of the new Timetable starting Monday 6th June, we will be closely monitoring what pupils are wearing. We really appreciate your support in making Forrester a smart, safe and inclusive environment.

Please can you familiarise yourself with the current dress code policy.

 The dress code for S1 –S6 can be a combination of the following:

Tops

  • Forrester polo shirt (black or white)
  • White school shirt*
  • Forrester sweatshirt
  • Forrester cardigan
  • Forrester V-neck pullover
  • S1 – S5 Forrester black tie
  • S6 Forrester green tie

With the exception of (*) all are available to purchase at the main school office.

All of the above should be paired with either:

  • Black trousers
  • Black skirt of a suitable length
  • Black footwear

All pupils must wear at least one item of Forrester High school dress code

S1-3 pupils are encouraged to wear a shirt and tie

 The following items do not constitute Forrester High School Dress Code and as such we actively discourage our young people from wearing them and we look for full parent/carer support in ensuring that incidences when young people do wear this are kept to an absolute minimum and are supported with a letter from home to explain the exceptional circumstances.

  • denim
  • coloured tops/coloured hoodies (hoodies should not be worn in the school building)
  • leggings
  • shorts
  • jogging bottoms/track suit bottoms
  • football colours
  • large logos
  • Baseball caps.
  • Crop tops, blue denim or other casual clothing.
  • Trainers or shoes with stripes/logos/ on them, or coloured rims.
  • Clothing with words, logos, stripes or pictures on them.
  • Clothing which is so short, tight or revealing that it could give offence to others.
  • Belts may be worn but they must be plain black.
  • Torn or ripped Jeans.
  • Large items of jewellery

Sports Day

Due to the cold weather and likelihood of rain today, we have had to postpone our Sports afternoon. It will now take place next Thursday 2nd June. As it currently stands, the weather for next Thursday looks great!

S1 HEROES AND VILLAINS Book Launch

H&V1 H&V2

A fantastic celebration of our S1 students as successful published authors took place on Wednesday 11th, in the FHS English Department.  Renowned author, Mary Turner Thomson, was present to tell us how she inspired our students to create their own fantasy characters, worlds and storylines, as well as to sign copies of their eagerly awaited books!

Our S2 student, Jamie Duffy, who enjoyed the project last year, was our witty compere for the evening, with Sam Dewar and Matthew Millar greeting guests at the door and showing them in.  Thank-you, boys!

The English Department is immensely proud of all their S1 students, however, the following pupils stood out and received awards under the categories listed below.  Well done, everybody and a special thank-you to the Business Management/office staff and our Librarian Miss Sutherland for all their hard work and support!  Books are selling fast, so see Mrs Collins if you’d like to buy one.

FHS Girl’s Football

Girl's Football 2 Girl's Football

The FHS girl’s football team is one of many extra curricular clubs being run at FHS. This girls team has been up and running since Nov 15. The girls have only played a few competitive matches to date, but the fixture list for the future is filling up nicely! At the beginning of the year the team decided they needed a team kit that looked professional to match their skills and abilities on the park. The girls put in a funding bid to neighbourhood partnership community grants and were successful! They managed to secure funding to purchase the first ever FHS female football kit. The girls then scoured the catalogues and selected the design of their new kit – which you can see is so beautifully modelled in the photos!

The girls would like to thank the Neighbourhood Partnership Community grants for all their support in this venture! “Having these strips allows us to play well whilst looking really professional, it’s made us feel really confident and proud to be part of the team!”
