The Forest School, Winnersh
The Forest School, Winnersh
Formerly the Forest Grammar School, and located in Robin Hood Lane, the school began as Woodley Hill Grammar School in 1957. It became a comprehensive school in 1974. It has been a Business and Enterprise College (BEC) since 2003 and was appointed by the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust as the "Enterprise Hub School for Berkshire" in 2006.
The current headteacher is Keith Quine, who replaced the legendary Stanley Grue in 2001. The school was founded by Walter G. Jackson (also the mayor of Wokingham in 1953) who was the first headmaster of the school.

I attended this school as a pupil, 1962-69.
