Head Teacher Update 26.06.20

Dear parents and students

As the strangest school term in living memory comes to an end, I would like to thank you all for sticking with us. We have been quite overwhelmed by the many positive messages from parents showing an appreciation for the commitment of our staff and an understanding of the complex circumstances in which they have been working. Things became more complex this week and there is still some uncertainty in terms of planning for August. As you know, we are now planning for all students to return to school on 12th August. This will, of course, depend on the virus continuing to be suppressed and social distancing being reduced, as is expected. We await further information from the Scottish Government and will share this with you when it becomes available, over the summer holidays.

Head Teacher Update 24.06.20

Dear Parent, 

Yesterday, the Deputy First Minister’s announced that all pupils are expected to return to school on Wednesday 12 August, should the COVID 19 virus continue to be suppressed.

Consequently, we are now working with the City of Edinburgh Council to revise our plans for the return of students. We will be in touch soon with updated information.

Please click on the link below to access a letter from Andy Gray, Chief Education Officer, City of Edinburgh Council, which explains this further.

Kind regards,

Stephen Rafferty

Welcome to our Virtual Award Ceremonies – Award Winner Announcement

Despite being in lockdown, the staff at Forrester High School felt that we couldn’t let the “Excellence in……” Subject winners and Special Award Winners successes go unnoticed.  With huge thanks to Alison Stewart and Hannah Craig, who have been the video editors, and the many staff contributors, we have two Virtual  Award Ceremonies  to share with you. Hopefully, for those returning to us in August, we will be able to celebrate in the more traditional way in June 2021.

Until then sit back and enjoy!

Welcome to Our School

As part of our Induction Programme for the new S1 cohort starting with us in August 2020, Mr MacPhie and Mr Thomas have made this fabulous video showcasing our wonderful school. Whilst many of you already know our school, it may have been some time since you were out and about in departments. Please take a minute or two to “visit” us.
