Thinking Schools

Forres has already been on the thinking schools journey for the past 3 years. We have adopted specific cognition programmes which we actively teach right throughout the school. These programmes teach children about how the brain works and provides them with cognit models that teach them learnin and research skills that they can apply to any aspect of their work and study for life. Some of these models are

  • Basic Concepts Program: Preschool
  • Thinking Tools: GrR to Gr7
  • Tasc Thinking Actively in Social Context: GrR Gr7
  • Habits of Mind: Gr4 Gr7
  • Thinking Maps: Gr1 Gr7
  • General Knowledge Quiz: Gr1 Gr7
  • THUNKS: Gr1 Gr7
  • Hits and Hots: Gr1 Gr7
  • De Bonos Thinking Hats: Gr1 Gr7

Forres Preparatory School is a progressive, co-educational school housed in the heart of Rondebosch, Cape Town. We are committed to providing a balanced & dynamic education for every child, with the belief that children are unique and that individual minds learn differently. The Forres Family is made up of a team of passionate teachers, supportive parents and children who love their school. Forres children thrive in this challenging, yet nurturing environment.
