The new academic year always holds much hope and the prospect of great achievements for all. In this context I have been reflecting on a summer of success for Forest Hill School. I am extremely proud of our boys’ achievement in both A level and GCSE examinations this year.
As you will see from the details in the results section, there were not only some stunning individual performances at both levels, but there were significant improvements in almost every subject area. I am delighted to report that Forest Hill is one of the two most improved schools in Lewisham thanks to the amazingly hard work of the staff, the support of the parents and, of course, the commitment and diligence of the students.
We pride ourselves at Forest Hill on the breadth of our curriculum and the range of opportunities offered to our boys in the arts and sports as well as the academic subjects. We are pleased, therefore, that not only did we see a doubling of the number of GCSE papers graded at 8 or 9 (the top grades), but that this was true across the curriculum – not only in the core subjects of English, Mathematics and Science, but in subjects such as Drama, which did especially well.
The results are particularly impressive when I consider the difficulties the school has faced in the last two years, and they demonstrate that Forest Hill is securely on its way to re-establishing itself as the best boys’ school in this district of London. I look forward to working with the community to ensure that this upward trajectory not only continues, but increases in momentum in the coming year. More details of the results can be seen by following the links below.
It is my pleasure to welcome parents of Year 6 pupils who are deciding on a school for their son for September 2019. We have a number of open events, beginning with our flagship evening on 24 September 17:00 – 19:00. The dates and times of the events are listed on the rolling banner at the top of this page. No booking is necessary and I would encourage you, if at all possible, to see the school in action on one of our open mornings when I will be pleased to showcase our aspirational, ordered and vibrant learning environment. I am confident you will be impressed. I look forward to meeting you.
