Forest Gate Community School (FGCS) is an exceptional learning environment with a real community spirit. In February 2016, Ofsted gave our school an “Outstanding” judgement.

We provide students with a high degree of challenge combined with excellent support and as a result our results are outstanding. Our staff share a commitment to delivering interesting and engaging lessons and to raising attainment. Relationships between staff and students are excellent and discipline is very good. We treat one another with respect and understanding.

We have a genuinely comprehensive intake and we work hard to meet the needs of all our students, from those who come to us with exceptional talents and abilities to those who require additional support to succeed.

This is an excellent school to work in. We have a comprehensive staff perks scheme that will save you pounds both on every day activities and on a plethora of leisure time pursuits. As a member of the school community, you will automatically receive a free membership to our state of the art gym and exercise class programme- there are yoga and relaxation classes for the less energetic.

We are passionately committed to the reduction of staff workload and have recently reduced teacher marking by 75%. This means that no member of staff has to take class books home to mark- ever! Staff enjoy working here and actively take part in our many staff social events, both on and off site. We care about our staff and know that a school can only be as good as the quality of the teachers that it supports and develops.

Our Vision

Fly, Grow, Connect, Strive

Fly: Forest Gate Community School is a learning community where staff and students have high aspirations for themselves and each other. We seek to create a place of learning for each and every student in our care and nothing will stand in the way of this entitlement.

Grow: We aim for our students to become well-informed, rounded and confident people. All of our students have the right to grow into well-informed, confident individuals who are able to demonstrate independent learning and responsibility in their attitudes towards one another.

Connect: We want our students to be aware of their responsibilities to others in the local community and to work cooperatively to make things better. We pride ourselves on our caring, disciplined and supportive community.

Strive: We instil in students the need to learn with an enquiring mind and to work hard. We encourage our teachers to deliver the best teaching they can because we believe this is the best way to support and improve the life chances of the students in our charge.
