Exam & Key Stage Results


The Forest School students are celebrating their 2020 GCSE results. 

Shirley Austin, Headteacher said, “This year has been highly unusual, following on from the uncertainty of A Level results we are delighted that our students have clarity, well judged and accurate grades, derived from our centre assessed grades. We followed a robust procedure and ensured every grade was quality assured. 

Our results are reflective of the hard work and effort that our 2020 Year 11s put into their studies throughout their time at The Forest. The school ethos of ASPIRE (aspire, safe, prepared, independent, respectful and excellent) is embedded into our school culture. I am delighted that my staff have based the results on data from lessons, attitude to learning, mocks, homework and tests from students' work to create the accurate CAG result.  

We are very proud of their efforts, determination and growth mindset. We continually look to improve our teaching and learning outcomes and during the last three years my team and we have made significant improvements; this is reflected in the rapid progress over the past few years. Through extended lessons, excellent teaching and learning opportunities and our enhanced monitoring and evaluation of students progress, Forest students have definitely flourished. We are of course delighted that Ofqual and the government have reversed the decision to use an algorithm to determine grades and have instead taken into account our centre assessed grades, as our tracking is robust and designed to ensure each student has the best outcomes for them. 

Congratulations to the whole year group, they are a fantastic group of students; we will be delighted to welcome so many back in September into Forest’s successful sixth form to study one of the twenty four A Level and Vocational courses we offer. We are in school today supporting any queries after the results were sent electronically at 8am.

For those that are unsure of their future educational direction, please speak with Mrs Collins, Head of Sixth Form, ncollins@forest.academy or for Careers Advice and Guidance speak with Mrs Lewington, blewington@forest.academy

Huge celebrations to the Maidens household with older brother Dylan achieving 3 A* at A level last week! 

During the summer the school has undertaken significant upgrades to the site including the construction of a new Air Dome and 3G Football pitch, a new Food Technology suite, painting and refurbishing our popular Sports Hall. We also have funding to refurbish our aging English block replacing that door which featured in the Channel 4 documentary last August! We can’t wait to get started! 


Forest Sixth Form Results 2020

We recognise that our 2020 cohort have experienced an unprecedented set of challenges this year, and want to congratulate each student on their effort, attitude and positivity during their studies. They have been a really fantastic group of students and we wish them the best for their future.

Our overall results have remained good and students have had positive outcomes, allowing unrestricted outcomes for their future with 80% of students successfully taking places at university with the remaining students securing apprenticeships and or work placements. In line with the national results picture we are disappointed that the Centre assessed grades have not been used in many cases. We await clarity from the government regarding the recently announced triple lock system to offer further information to our amazing students. 

Shirley Austin, Headteacher, said, "Congratulations to all students and staff, this has been a tumultuous year and this cohort has experienced something unique and very unexpected. They have been put in an unprecedented situation and I want to emphasise how proud we are of their capacity to deal with this challenge and their hard work and dedication. I also want to emphasize how proud I am of my dedicated team of sixth form teachers, led by Mrs Collins; their desire to go the extra mile to help every student is humbling and incredible. The school culture teaches each student to ASPIRE, (aspire, safe, prepared, independent, respectful and excellent) in this case we can add resilience to the list of character traits they have shown. We wish them all the best for the future, whatever they choose to do.” 

Congratulations to Dylan Maidens he has outstanding results and has achieved the top spot with 3 A* with Joe Dearing achieving 2A* and 1A

Congratulations to Amelia Welling for her outstanding work she has received 3 Distinction Star; Alice Russell has received 2 Distinction Star and 2 As.

In addition the following students require a special mention achieving at least 2 A’s.
