Forest Crest Only 7A7760 low res     The Forest School GCSE Results 2019

The Forest School students are celebrating their 2019 GCSE results. 

Shirley Austin, Headteacher said “we are very proud of the results of all our boys, they have worked incredibly hard as the school has gone through a challenging 5 years. These results continue to highlight the great strides taken in moving to above national standards. Typically we see girls outperform boys at GCSE and today our results are compared with all schools across the country, not just the 200 all-boy schools. Our results show, when compared to boys-only results, the superb results our boys have achieved today.”

Shirley continued “I would like to congratulate all our students and look forward to continuing our journey with so many of our boys who are staying on to study A’ Levels as well as welcoming boys and girls from our local community joining us in Year 12.”

100% of students achieved the government standard pass in Biology, Chemistry and Physics with 81% in  English and 81% in Maths. 

So many boys went beyond their best achieving grade 7 or higher which is equivalent to the old A* and A grade. Individual subject success at this level was high with: English 21%, Maths 22%, Biology 76%, Chemistry 59%, Physics 72%, Film  Studies 25%, Geography 25%, History 25%, Photography 20%, Art 26%, Computer Science 25%, French 21% and Spanish 25%.

Individual successes where students have achieved grade 7 or above in more than 9 subjects include: Qasim Arain, Hishaam Ashraf, Marcus Bailey, Lemuel Bodi-Ngwala, Euan Deas, Alaistair Glen, Toby Irving, Jude Lawrence, Michael Linder, Harry Maple, Samuel Murdoch, Daniel Simpson, Aidan Taylor-Lapthorn, Yaw Turkson, Joseph Turner and Marcus Wright.

During the summer the school has undertaken significant upgrades to the site including a new bespoke Raising Achievement Centre, a study hall and a brand new toilet block. We continue to take safeguarding very seriously and have upgraded our CCTV system to cover the school.
