GCSE Results 2018

Posted: 23rd August 2018

For the fourth year in a row, Forest Hall School has achieved improved GCSE results.

The 2017 summer exam season saw students sitting the new grade 9 to 1 GCSEs for the first time in maths and English, with the majority of other subjects switching to the new format this year.

The 9 to 1 numerical grades do not map across in a simple way to the A* to G grades. A grade 9 is not comparable to an A*, for example.

The number of students who achieved a grade 4-9 in English and maths at the school, in Stansted, increased this year with 74 per cent of students getting the 9 to 4 grades English literature or language and 60 per cent scoring the 9 to 4 grades in maths.

Top performing students this year include –

* Lottie Whitmell - 8, 8, 8, 7, 7, 7, 6, A, A, A
* Kelly Banks - 6, 6, 6, 6, 5, A, B, B, C, merit
* Jake Mullens – 9, 7, 7, 6, 6, 6, 6, 5, A, B, C
* Nina Constantino – 7, 6, 6, 6, 6, 5, A, A, A, C
* William Chapman - 9, 8, 8, 7, 7, 6, 5, B, B

Forest Hall has been part of BMAT since February 2015, with the mission to boost student numbers and exam results. The implementation of Saturday school, holiday school and revision sessions in all subject areas has enabled the students to achieve their very best.

Head of school Hannah Jones said: “I could burst with pride and joy for our exceptional students and their wonderful results. I am delighted that for the fourth year in a row GCSE results at Forest Hall School have improved. Each year, our students step up to the challenge and achieve fantastic results. I want to take a moment to applaud all our exceptional students, their teachers and their parents/carers for this amazing achievement.

“These exceptional results reinforce the ethos of our school. Our students work hard, have high expectations and aspire to achieve their highest potential. We believe that every student can achieve and be exceptional. The additional time staff have spent with the students in preparation for their examinations is evident in the great results.

“It is now time for our exceptional class of 2018 to leave us and follow their dreams. Good luck and remember, aim for the exceptional!”

Success also went to students entered early for GCSE examinations in Year 10 and 9. Students at Forest Hall School complete up to two option GCSEs in Year 9 or 10.

Top performing students include –

Mame Seck for achieving a grade 6 in geography
Armani-Jai Newman for achieving a grade 8 in French
