End of Term Letter & Last Day of Term Arrangements11 July 2018
Last Day of Term Arrangements
School will finish at lunchtime on Friday July 20th 2018 for the summer break. Lessons will finish as normal at 1.00pm; the canteen will be open until 1.20pm, however students can leave at 1.00pm if they do not require a lunch.
The new term starts on Wednesday September 5th at the normal time of 8.30am.
As it is the time of year that you will be thinking about uniform please can I direct you to the school website: http://www.foresthigh.org.uk/uniform where all details about school uniform can be found, including a link to the uniform supplier for Forest High School’s blazers, jumpers, ties and PE kit.
The uniform policy clearly states that students may wear ‘black trousers that are traditional school style, classic smart, not tight, or made from elasticated fabric’. They may also wear ‘black skirts that are traditional school style, knee length, not tight or made from elasticated fabric’.
As a school we do not stipulate which brand should be worn; we believe that as parents you should have a range of choices. However, please be aware that some companies who market some items as ‘School Wear’ sell trousers and skirts that do not comply with The Forest High School policy – we would urge parents not to waste their money on items that are not compliant with our school uniform policy. As an example, the types of trousers and skirts that do meet our policy are:
Girls: Black Greenwich School Trousers/ Black Medway Straight Skirt
Boys: Black Falmouth School Trousers
Items of a similar style to these are available via various suppliers on-line.
Thank you for your support of the school this year, a newsletter detailing various events that have happened recently will be published on Friday July 20th.
Paul Holroyd, Headteacher
