Pupils and staff at The Forest School are celebrating another good year of GCSE exam results.
Headteacher, Siobhan Denning, said “As always, I am extremely proud of our boys. They continue to outperform their peers, both boys and girls, nationally and their results this year are no exception. 70% of boys attained 5 A*-C grades, with 66% achieving 5 A*-C including English and Maths. It was lovely to be in school this morning and share in their excitement and delight as they opened their envelopes and read their results. There were so many happy faces and it was wonderful to see so many staff in school to share in the boys’ successes.
Historically, our boys always do well in Maths – 81% of them achieved a C grade this year, against a national figure of 63%. However, I’m especially delighted with our English results. Early indications show that nationally the pass figure is 65% - our boys achieved 83% - a great achievement.”
More able pupils at the school continue to do exceptionally well - 24 pupils achieved 10 or more A*/A results; Charlie Maclean, Qing Liu and Ed Jeffrey all got 12 grades at A*/A. Toby Beesley, Jack Edwards, Sean Hutchinson, Calum Robison and Louis Timperley all achieved 13 A*/A, whilst Thomas Farr and Roberto Salvia achieved a fantastic 14 A*/A. A quarter of all our GCSE results were A*/A grades.
Ms Denning added “I am delighted that the hard work, commitment and dedication of our pupils and staff, along with the support of parents, have been rewarded. At Forest we strive to challenge pupils and provide an environment where boys really can learn best. Our results this year show that boys continue to do very well at Forest.”
Cliff Purvis, Chair of Governors added: “I am very pleased with the results and the boys should be extremely proud of their achievements. Our pupils, their parents and the staff at the school are to be congratulated on another pleasing year of results.”
