Forest Academy joined the Inspire Partnership Trust family of schools on the 1 April 2020.
Forest Academy is a three form entry mixed primary school with a nursery. We serve a culturally and socially diverse area and are situated in a residential area close to West Wickham. We cater for children between the ages of 3 and 11 years old.
Our grounds are extensive and we are fortunate enough to have a brand new nursery and reception area designed within a 'forest' area, complete with running stream.
The learning community at Forest Academy creates pupils with inspiration, ambition, academic success where pupils are passionate to learn. Through our challenge curriculum, pupils develop a love for the outdoors and learning in the local environment, being aware that learning can come in many forms. Pupils are respectful of and celebrate each other’s differences, heritage and culture. They are self-motivated, confident pupils able to apply their skills. We are an Academy built on interdependence, encouraging all staff, pupils, parents and carers and the community, to work together to achieve more than they ever could have accomplished as individuals. All pupils are polite, well rounded, inquisitive individuals who are respectful of others. All pupils develop thinking skills enabling future success outside of school and in years to come. We expect the best from every pupil in all that they do.
