Forres Sandle Manor School (FSM) is an independent preparatory day and boarding school for boys and girls aged 2 to 13, situated in the small town of Fordingbridge, Hampshire. Set in beautiful grounds on the edge of the New Forest, our School’s location was recorded as far back as the Doomsday Book. Today, we provide a holistic, rounded education that prepares children for the next stage of their education and for adult life.
At Forres Manor School, we strongly believe that happy children succeed. This ethos underpins everything we do and creates a community of children who are confident, eager to learn, brave enough to take risks, and caring of each other.
At a time when young people’s peace of mind is being eroded by a range of external pressures, we aim to create an environment where children can just be children, with the freedom to find and explore their passions. Our innovative new Saturday morning enrichment activities, focused on children’s creative and personal development, are a great example of this.
