School Awards

Rights Respecting School

Forrester High is a Level 1 Rights Respecting School. We are proud to say we were the first City of Edinburgh Council secondary school to achieve this award!

Thank you to all our staff for the hard work put in over the last few years – at FHS we constantly strive to improve our curriculum, as well as our extra-curricular opportunities, in order to provide the best possible experience for all our young people.

The school will now continue to work towards Level 2 of the award, by which point we will have children’s rights firmly and sustainably embedded in every aspect of school life. We can only achieve this by working together – staff, parents and pupils.

Any pupils or parents who would like to be involved more as we go forward, please contact Mr Wright in the Social Subjects department.
