Some of the current P7s said:
“Forge is full of interesting people from all over the world.”
“Forge is a great school. Everyone is different and no one is friendless.”
“Forge's residentials are great fun and everyone is friendly.”
“I think Forge is good because it teaches you new skills fast!”
"I think that Forge is a good school because it's integrated and you can meet people from different backgrounds and cultures."
“Something that particularly stands out for me is the staff team. They are all individuals but work together effectively and cohesively. I think my children have benefited from this as the teachers work with each others’ strengths, not as individuals.”
Gary McCann (parent)
"Forge welcomed us to Belfast and integrated my son who spoke no English when he came. The three years we spent at the school were the best time he had at any school so far. He made great progress, learnt the language fluently and made many wonderful friends. We both really miss the atmosphere at Forge and all the extra activities the staff do with the kids, especially the school plays, fun days and choir. Thank you so much!"
Maike Majewski, who has since returned to Germany, and worked at QUB for 3 years.
“Forge was fun the whole time, and it gave me a chance to meet people from different cultures and backgrounds.”
“Forge was a great place to go to primary school. You knew everybody and it had a community feeling.”
David and Michael Morrow (Classes of 2002 and 2005)
“The best thing I loved about Forge was the friendly relationships between pupils and teachers…Forge prepared me for secondary school, on my way to adulthood, I developed skills there I was able to bring to secondary level. I have a few memories of beating the boys at football at lunchtimes, they hated that of course, but I loved every minute of it!”
