About Us

New Forest Academy is a thriving 11-18 comprehensive academy, educating children of all abilities. Through our business and enterprise specialism we challenge and encourage every child to achieve their full potential not just in terms of academic attainment but also in relation to the many extra-curricular opportunities and community activities that are on offer at the academy.

We are a fully inclusive academy, and believe in nurturing the talents and capabilities of all sections of our community. We continue the excellent work of our feeder schools and provide a huge range of curricular opportunities.

Our recent Ofsted inspection reported that our students enjoy coming to New Forest Academy, which contributes to the calm learning atmosphere you will find around the site. Click here for the Ofsted website and our recent reports.

Our aim is to enable students to leave New Forest Academy appropriately qualified and as mature, caring members of society, with the right level of qualifications.
