- GCSE 2013
Pupils and staff at The Forest School are celebrating another good year of GCSE exam results.
Headteacher, Siobhan Denning, said “We are extremely proud of our pupils’ achievements; the results this year are among our best despite the national tightening on grades. 85% of boys attained 5 A*-C grades, with 68% achieving 5 A*-C including English and Maths. Whilst pupils have done well in all subjects I am particularly pleased with our best ever maths results; 82% of pupils achieved a C Grade or above.”
More able pupils at the school continue to do exceptionally well – 20 pupils achieved 10 or more A*/A results; Dan Kent, Joe Oddy, Alex Paterson, Declan Rapley, and Alex Triccas all got 11 or more grades at A* or A, Sam Holden achieved 13 A*/A grades and an A in AS History, whilst Mark Hewitt achieved a fantastic 15 A*/A grades. 15 pupils also achieved grades at AS level.
Ms Denning added “I am delighted that the hard work, commitment and dedication of our pupils and staff, along with the support of parents, has 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 excellent year of results.”
