So much more

At Forres we believe that learning involves so much more than the core curriculum. We endeavour to expose children to as many learning and enriching opportunities as possible.

  • Each class goes on an outing every term
  • A school visit appropriate to the phase is brought in each term
  • Roots and Shoots: the Jane Goodall Foundation - at Forres we are official members of the Roots and Shoots program. Our school is involved in a multi-tiered process which reciprocally spreads the message of Hope for the future by giving each child a sense of hope and that they can contribute in a meaningful way. To this end all children are involved in Outreach, Environmental Concerns, Community and Diversity.
    • Children work in and plant the sensory garden
    • Host visits from a school in need which is supported by Forres
    • Engage in world environmental days
    • Bounce Back Program - teaching resilience
    • Basic Concepts Program (BCP) - a cognition program which teaches pre-schoolers how to think about their thinking

Forres Preparatory School is a progressive, co-educational school housed in the heart of Rondebosch, Cape Town. We are committed to providing a balanced & dynamic education for every child, with the belief that children are unique and that individual minds learn differently. The Forres Family is made up of a team of passionate teachers, supportive parents and children who love their school. Forres children thrive in this challenging, yet nurturing environment.
