Forest of Dean Trust

Our Values

Our Trust is founded upon the collective pursuit of our leading aim: "That each and every learner shall achieve their maximum potential and enjoy the process.". We know that life throws us many challenges, and we aim to work in partnership so that we can learn about what lies ahead and prepare ourselves for our role in not just modern Britain, but the world.  Progress is rarely linear in life and school, and we are passionate that our broad and balanced curriculum complements our pastoral care and pedagogy.

The Forest of Dean Trust is built upon excellent relationships, honest conversations and unwavering support to get the best out of each other. Staff work together to improve their teaching, students are actively involved in their school and parents are listened to and supported in our shared journey.

The modern world is a complex place and we seek to equip our students with the skills to thrive and to make a difference. We relish the opportunity we have been given to influence the lives of young people in the Forest of Dean.

Our trust has a common-sense approach to working with young people that is founded on giving and getting respect. Our staff love their jobs, and we work hard to instill a love of school and community into our students. We are very serious about our role within the community and we are an active presence within it.
