What’s On for Families Summer NE2019 final

Summer Message

As another busy school year draws to a close, I would like to wish all students, staff and families a restful and enjoyable summer. My message to students this week in assemblies has been to keep themselves and their friends safe, to be active and get involved in the many opportunities on offer in the community.

Forrester High School will close for the summer holiday at 12noon on Friday 28th June and I look forward to seeing evryone back safe and well on Wednesday 14th August.

Thanks, and best wishes.

Stephen Rafferty

Head Teacher

Dress Code Reminder to all Parents

Dear Parent,

Your support in helping us maintain high standards of Dress Code is very much appreciated.  Improving achievement, attainment and ethos in our school is connected to raising standards in how our young people present and how they dress.  And as part of reducing the cost of the school day, it is vitally important they come to school dressed appropriately and ready to learn.

In anticipation of Dress Code being replenished for the start of the new term in August, please be reminded that leggings / track suit bottoms do not conform with the Forrester High School Dress Code. 

If your son / daughter is in the Senior Phase……


Forrester Transition Sports

June 2019

There will be 4 weeks of activities based on the most popular activities chosen by the P7’s across the cluster.  This is a good opportunity to meet other pupils going to Forrester High School and meet some of the coaches and staff that deliver extra-curricular clubs.

Please also see the information in the link below about football trials if your child would like to play for the school S1 team.
