Welcome to Forest Hills Primary School

We are delighted to welcome back all pupils for the new term.

Message from Head of School


Welcome to our school website where I hope you are able to find out all of the information you need about our school.
Forest Hills Primary School is on an exciting journey, which began in September 2020. During the Autumn term, our parents, children and staff chose to rebrand our school with a new name and logo to mark the new adventure we were about to begin as part of Perry Hall Multi-Academy Trust.
Our children suggested and chose the name of our school, Forest Hills, because it reflected the area in which we live and also our passion for the outdoors. Our children also developed ideas for our school logo alongside graphic designers, which provided a real-life, purposeful context for their learning.
“Living, Learning, Growing” is our school motto. We strongly encourage positive relationships with children, parents and the local community where our families live. We believe this is key in providing our children with a high-quality educational experience. Our aim is to inspire children to reach their highest potential and to have the confidence in themselves as lifelong learners.
We look forward to welcoming you to our school. If you would like to arrange a visit or have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
