Welcome from the Head of School

Welcome to Forest Hall School, a mixed 11-16 comprehensive school, in Stansted Mountfitchet. Forest Hall School is a warm and diverse community which I am very proud to lead. As Head of School, I am delighted and honoured that you are joining us on our journey in becoming exceptional.

Nelson Mandela once said “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” I wholeheartedly echo his thoughts, education changes the world. The education we provide the young people here at Forest Hall School will open up doors for their future and give them the confidence and skills to change the world.  

I am proud that we have an inclusive and supportive environment where young people can thrive and excel. Each member of staff has the highest of expectations of our young people to achieve the exceptional.

Our ethos of ALL students having the ability to be exceptional is at the forefront of everything we do. The partnership between our young people, parents/carers and staff is crucial in ensuring that we all enjoy our time at Forest Hall School. ALL young people should make exceptional progress and leave us as exceptional, well-qualified, mature, and ready to make a valued contribution to society.     

At Forest Hall School, exceptional behaviour is top of our priorities. Young people are expected to display exceptional behaviour every day. Our young people should wear their Forest Hall School uniform with pride. Our school ethos is centred on exceptional behaviour, any cases of low-level disruption in class is dealt with in an appropriate way.

Exceptional learning is also the top of our priorities at Forest Hall School. Our young people must use every moment of each lesson to learn something new and leave the school each day excited by this learning and curious for more. Young people should aspire to be exceptional and to aim for the highest academic results to allow them to go onto the best Russell group universities in the country.

I am proud of our strong community ethos in the school. The vertical House system helps to create for all young people a happy, safe and supportive atmosphere. All members of the community treat each other with respect and courtesy. The young people often say that Forest Hall School is their second home. For example some arrive here from 8.15am in the morning at breakfast club until 5.00pm in the evening where they stay at homework club or the numerous study clubs and enrichment clubs that we have.

Our focus each and every day at Forest Hall School is to ensure that the young people improve in their learning and achieves highly. Not only do I want them to develop and progress academically, I also hold great value on social, moral, spiritual and cultural development. I am often amazed with how kind, caring and acceptable our wonderful school community is. Each year we all take the time to give back to the local community by taking part in activities such as gardening, litter picking, painting, cooking in the day centre. In such a diverse and ever-changing community, it is important that all our young people leave Forest Hall School as exceptional individuals.

The school vision is simply –

We ARE Forest Hall
Aspiring to Reach the Exceptional


“To belong to Forest Hall School is an honour and each of us ASPIRES to REACH a potential which is not limited but gives us wings to be EXCEPTIONAL with a shared sense of purpose.”
