Grounds Manager

Games and a full sporting curriculum form an integral part of school life at Forest. The playing fields and sports facilities, over two sites, cater to multiple sporting activities throughout the year.

Forest School wishes to appoint a committed, experienced and passionate full-time Grounds Manager with excellent knowledge of machinery and oversee the care and maintenance of all the sports pitches.

The Forest School Ethos

Forest is a humane, open-minded school with both feet on the ground, in which the pupils’ all-round personal development is outstanding and academic attainment is high. It is, above all, a happy school which understands the rich inter-relationship between the curricular, the co-curricular and the pastoral. There is boldness in the School’s character, a readiness to be forward-thinking and adaptable, with pride in what we are and excitement for what lies ahead.
