New name, new start for Forest Academy, Cinderford02 March 2015
Staff and pupils returned from half term to witness the unveiling of the new name for Forest E-Act Academy – The Forest High School.
The Cinderford-based school has had several names in the recent past, however the transfer of the sponsorship from E-Act to the South Gloucestershire and Stroud Academy Trust (SGSAT) has meant that a new name was necessary to recognise this new beginning and the range of opportunities in place as a result of the partnership.
Tanya Prosser, Headteacher at the School comments 'the last few weeks have been a bit of a whirlwind to be honest. We have been blown away with the support we have received from SGS Academy Trust since the New Year when they were asked to take over sponsorship of the School from E-Act. There has been a new focus on the School, how we present ourselves within our community and new approaches and ideas about the curriculum. Pupils love the new name and our new logo but we will retain our uniforms."
Kevin Hamblin, Chief Executive of the SGS Academy Trust added
SGS Academy Trust officially took over the sponsorship of The Forest High School on March 1st and will be publishing their prospectus for 2015/16 to parents with children in the current year 6 accompanied by a parents information evening on 4th March from 4.30pm-5.30pm.
