Forest School, Essex

Forest School Capital Building Project

On a site which is almost reaching capacity, three major building projects have been identified. Planning permission has been sought for a significant new building at the heart of the School. We also wish to create a new Science Department and install an all-weather astroturf pitch on The Park.

Situation

We need more larger classrooms for general teaching. Some lessons are taught in rooms where lack of space prevents practical demonstrations. Also, the Science Labs, currently in 3 differerent areas of the School, have to be upgraded to comply with current Health & Safety regulations. The layout of the department needs completely restructuring to ensure the continued recruitment and retention of excellent teachers and high pupil achievement. An astroturf would complement existing facilities.

Solution

The Martin Building will mean a new learning space which will allow us to breathe. Rooms that are too small for 27 pupils can be released for smaller Sixth Form classes. Teaching will be even more inspirational, leading to happier pupils and staff and greater learning success.New Science Labs in the vacated space would allow pupils to do practicals in every double period. The building of 4 more labs and the conversion of other classrooms would raise the number of labs to 16.

  • The standard of teaching in the Sciences remains a constant strength at Forest, as do the examination results that we achieve.
