Message from Headteacher

Forrester High School will close for the summer holiday at 12noon on Friday 30th June.

This has been an exciting first term for me and a great year for our students with many outstanding achievements both in and out of school. Students and their families can be proud of the their work.

Unfortunately, the year ended in great sadness with the passing of Anna Burnett, our fantastic Art teacher. I am grateful for the way that staff, students and parents pulled together to support each other through this difficult time. Anna’s great spirit and positive approach to everything she did will remain as an example to us all.

Finally, I wish everyone an enjoyable and restful holiday and look forward to seeing students back on Wednesday 16th August.
