The Forest High School relocation
The Forest High School will be relocated to a portion of 187 Allambie Road, Allambie Heights. This site is located within the current intake area for The Forest High School.
Student learning will continue at the current school site until the new facilities are built.
Updates regarding the relocation of The Forest High School will be released as the project progresses. The School Infrastructure website will continue to have up-to-date information about The Forest High School relocation: http://www.schoolinfrastructure.nsw.gov.au/projects/f/the-forest-high-school-relocation.html
Read the latest Planning Update for The Forest High School relocation on the project website, in the ‘library’ tab:
The image shown of the school layout is indicative of the footprint for this early stage in the planning process, and does not show all of the facilities that would be included in each building.
The new site has adequate space for a high school that will accommodate up to 1,500 students. This includes space for a sports oval, multi-purpose courts, gymnasium, covered outdoor learning area, landscaped recreation areas and walkways between buildings. The size of building footprints, learning space inclusions and play spaces have been determined in accordance with NSW Department of Education guidelines.
Why is The Forest High School relocating?
Frenchs Forest is undergoing significant investment from the New South Wales government to improve infrastructure and transport links in the area. This investment is an opportunity to revitalise Frenchs Forest and create a new town centre for the community. As a result, the current site of the school will provide the benefits of the town centre, and the school will relocate to a new site.
