We welcome day children from ages 3 to 13 and boarders from the age of 8. Our beautiful grounds on the edge of the New Forest provide us with many opportunities to enhance our academic curriculum and develop our sense of community. The school is near the town of Fordingbridge in Hampshire, easily accessible from Salisbury, Bournemouth and Southampton.
We passionately believe that ‘Happy Children Succeed’. We provide a breadth of academic, creative and sporting opportunities, whilst always encouraging children to be children. We are an academic school with a mixed ability intake. Our creative child-centred approach to teaching and learning encourages the individuality of each pupil, allowing them to take risks and flourish in a safe environment.
FSM is proud of its academic and scholarship record, which is supported by an innovative Able Child Programme and our Learning Centre which guides those children who learn differently.
We hope that our website will give you a flavour of the atmosphere of the school and the variety of opportunities on offer at Forres Sandle Manor. We hope you will want to visit!
