The Forum School


Interim Principal

Greg Regan

Telephone: 01258 860295

"Over the past 10 years, since qualifying as a teacher at Plymouth University, I have been fortunate to have been able  to teach in a variety of mainstream and special schools. Doing so, I have taught all key stages from reception through to Key Stage 5. I have thoroughly enjoyed teaching children across the age ranges and have relished the challenge of supporting children's learning across the curriculum, whatever their ability or age.


In my recent post of Head Teacher of a non-maintained special school, I supported the school to rapidly improve as well as develop a true person-centred approach. I passionately believe that learning should be functional, meaningful and most importantly, fun!


My role with The Forum School is to lead the education department ensuring that students receive curriculum that not only meets their individual needs but challenges them to achieve the very best they can."


Care Services Manager

Kerry Byron

Telephone: 01258 860295

"I have worked at the school for 18 years and have been the Registered Manager for the last two. I oversee the children's home within the school and am dedicated to working with our care staff team to support our children and young people to grow and develop. I fully appreciate that leaving your child in the trust of other adults is a challenging time and therefore we strive to ensure that good relationships are built with all parents and work to ensure that key information is communicated to you.


I recognise and promote that for the majority of the year, if not all, this is the children's home and we are privileged to be a part of their childhood. We recognise that each and every child at the school needs care and nurturing and we work with them and you to use individual strategies that best support their individual needs, thus striving to ensure they gain as much from their experience here as possible."
