The Forest School is more than just a school: generations of families have been and continue to be part of The Forest School as they are celebrating their 2021 GCSE results. This year we have already celebrated sporting firsts, Music and Arts, technology, published writers and many more successes. 

Shirley Austin, Headteacher said, “This year is the second year of results being derived from students' school work and internal exams. This year Ofqual has empowered teachers to generate Teacher Assessed Grades (TAG). Using exam board guidance and grading criteria The Forest School followed a robust procedure ensuring every grade was quality assured. I am delighted that my staff have worked diligently to ensure results based on data from classroom tests and mock exams have allowed us to issue fair, accurate and quality assured results.

The Forest School results reflect the hard work, determination, stoicism that our Year 11 students put into their studies. They really have endured a monumental shift in expectations during this historical time and they have been sterling in their efforts, learning attitudes and results.”

We are delighted that our students have clarity, well-judged and accurate grades which will allow them to progress on their educational journey. The school ethos of ASPIRE (aspire, safe, prepared, independent, respectful and excellent) has certainly held true for these boys and  through engagement in lessons, excellent ongoing teaching and learning and our enhanced monitoring and evaluation of students’ progress, Forest students have definitely flourished. Students were already well equipped to use our Google Classroom infrastructure and IT enriched lessons whilst learning from home. 

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 our co-ed sixth form to study one of the twenty five A Level and Vocational courses we offer.

Any GCSE student from the local community that are unsure of their future educational direction, please speak with Mrs N Collins, Head of Sixth Form, sixthform@forest.academy or for Careers Advice and Guidance contact Mr S Jackman, sjackman@forest.academy. We are happy and willing to guide all students both from Forest and other schools.

Forest Sixth Form Results 2021  Forest 6 logo grey and orange Nov 2016 cropped white big cmyk

Our wonderful sixth form students have experienced an unprecedented set of challenges over their two years. This year we are free from the controversial algorithm with grades being generated by their teachers from evidence produced in the classroom. Following exam board grading criteria The Forest School followed a robust procedure ensuring every grade was quality assured. We are delighted that our students have clarity, well-judged and accurate grades. I 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 over 80% of students successfully securing first choice places at university, with the remaining students securing apprenticeships, work placements or taking advantage of the opening travel corridors with GAP year plans.

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 results on data from classroom based tests and mock exams to create the accurate Teacher Assessed Grades (TAG) result.  

Shirley Austin, Headteacher, said, "Congratulations to all students and staff, this has been another unique and at times tumultuous year and yet this cohort has shown their capacity to deal with this challenge and their hard work and dedication. I also want to emphasise 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.”

We are delighted to highlight some of our excellent results:

Further Maths: 100% A*

Chemistry: 100% A*- A
