We admit children in line with the Suffolk LA admissions policy. Please see our Policies section for the Admissions policy. Your child’s name can be placed on the waiting list at the age of 2 for Nursery only. Children will be offered a full time place at the beginning of the school year in which they have their 5th birthday.

Parents considering sending their children to Forest Academy are encouraged to contact the school to make an appointment to visit.

Please note that even though your child may have a place in the Nursery, you will still need to
apply for a full time school place following the normal admission procedure.
The PAN for Forest Academy is 60.

Move to a different school (in-year applications 2022/2023)

  • during the school year
  • at the start of the school year but in a different age group from the school's normal year of entry
