What the school says...

Surrounded by ancient forest and only 30 minutes from central London, Forest School is an independent day school located on the edge of Epping Forest. One of the very few diamond structure schools in the country, our 1,300 boys and girls, aged between 4 and 18, are taught in single-sex classes from 7-16 before joining a coeducational Sixth Form. Beyond the classroom, however, they enjoy all the benefits of a coeducational environment - the best of all worlds.

Academic Matters

‘Both of my daughters are scholars,’ said one very pleased parent. Single-sex teaching in this co-educational environment ‘creates a study environment that boys and girls feel comfortable with and which enables them to achieve their best’, says school. Teachers are committed; about a third of them have been here more than 10 years and all of them are specialists in their subjects; also large number part-time eg music, drama and dance specialists.
