I am delighted to welcome you to our website!

The school has an excellent reputation within the community. The recent OFSTED inspection gave the school the top grade for care, guidance and support of pupils and we are extremely proud of this. Our results at Key Stage 2 and 3 are good and the school is well resourced.
I hope you find this website informative but if you are interested in finding out more please feel free to contact the school - you will be made to feel very welcome.

Education is a continuous process in which skills, knowledge and understanding are gradually acquired. We recognise that pupils learn at different speeds and in various ways. We, therefore, aim to create stimulating and appropriately differentiated learning experiences, which allows each child to discover and develop his/her own particular strengths. Teachers, Governors and Parents share the responsibility of ensuring that all children fully develop their potential.

It is the school's policy to offer a broadly-based education to all pupils to ensure delivery of the National Curriculum of which the key elements are:-

(a) the four core subjects of English, ICT, Mathematics and Science; and

(b) the nine foundation subjects of Art, Design and Technology, Geography, History, Modern Foreign Language (French), Music, Physical Education and Citizenship at KS3. We also teach PSHE and RE which is not a National Curriculum subject but is statutory.

These subjects will have specified programmes of study, attainment targets (over four key stages at ages 7, 11, 14 and 16) and assessment arrangements all aimed at improving standards of teaching and learning. They are taught as discrete subjects in Years 6, 7 & 8. In Year 5 History, Geography and Science are taught in Integrated Studies.

Pupils are taught in ability groups in English and Maths in all years. Other subjects are taught in mixed ability groups.

Key Stage 2 tests in English, Mathematics and Science in May, the results of which are included in the school brochure. Years 7 & 8 are set internal school examinations in some subjects.
The majority of Year 8 pupils will sit their KS3 tests in 2007 following the introduction of a condensed KS3.

The National Curriculum documents are available in school for parents to peruse if they so wish.

Parents have the right to withdraw children from lessons in Religious Education and from daily acts of collective worship, both of which are non-denominational in approach. Please contact the Headteacher to discuss this if you feel this is appropriate. Members of the clergy occasionally take whole school assemblies.

Lessons in Sex Education are given as part of the General Science and/or Personal, Social and Health Education curriculum. The programme has the approval of the Governing Body. As part of the agreed policy, parents will normally receive advance notice in writing that this area of the curriculum is due to be focused upon during lessons.


 variety of after school clubs are available for pupils to attend throughout the year at Forelands. Please contact the school for a list of clubs which are running this term.

Important Information for parents:

  • Clubs will not run the first week after each half-term.
  • All clubs will finish at 4 pm (unless otherwise stated) to enable pupils to catch the 20 minutes past 4 Ryde bus should they need to do so (please note that this bus does not go through Nettlestone). Please ensure your child knows the arrangements for getting home before they come to school. Pupils will not be allowed to stay to any club unless the signed reply slip has been returned.
  • If a club is over-subscribed your child will be notified verbally.
  • If it is necessary to cancel a club, 24 hours notice will be given if at all possible.
  • We expect your child to attend any club for which his/her name has been put forward on a regular basis. Pupils who fail to attend three consecutive sessions will be removed from the club register.


The PTA is a very friendly group that meets a couple of times a term and are always looking for new members! This is a great way of meeting other parents and is most enjoyable. Don't worry if you can't make every meeting your help would still be most welcome.

Remember the PTA is only as good as the help it receives, and at the end of the day it benefits your child.

We are involved in a number of fund raising activities that contribute to the school budget and helps Forelands Middle School provide a wide range of activities for your children.

Among the many yearly activities that we are involved in include the Year 8 End of Term Ball which takes a lot of time and energy, from decorating the hall, providing the meal, disco, cocktail bar (non alcoholic!), autograph albums and much more!!

In the Spring, every year the PTA provide a welcome stop over for the Island Randonee, this event generates on average £1,000 to our fund raising. We provide, hot and cold drinks, plenty of cakes (so get baking now!!). It's a hard days work but its worth it.

If you are keen to meet us please contact us or e-mail the school, we look forward to hearing from you.
