Another year of outstanding GCSE Results at Forest School

Forest School pupils have once again posted impressive GCSE results in new challenging examinations where grades are now awarded under the new number grading system. As you probably know, the old alphabetical grades now have numerical equivalents where a 9 is an A**, an 8 is an A*, and 7 is an A.

Forest School is proud to say that, for the second year in a row, at least 75% of the 1400 individual GCSE grades awarded to our 150 pupils were A**/A*/A or 9/8/7 and 50% were A**/A* 9/8 with 20 pupils achieving straight A**/A* or 9/8.

It is also pleasing to note that there was no gender gap with boys performing 2% higher than girls overall, bucking the national trend which sees girls outperforming boys.

All of Forest’s Year 11 pupils were also entered for the Higher Project Qualification (HPQ) a high-level research project favoured by universities, and an impressive 92% of pupils attained A*-B grades in their HPQ with 78% achieving A*/A.
