Record GCSE Outcomes

For the second year running, we have set a new high for our best ever GCSE outcomes, achieving a Progress 8 figure of +0.23. This means that our performance is significantly ahead of all students (including girls) locally and nationally. It outstrips that of boys locally and nationally by an even greater margin, demonstrating that when parents send their sons to us they can be confident of excellent performance. Forest Hill bucks the trend of boys’ underachievement!

Anti-racism Resources

The murder of George Floyd must prompt careful reflection about racism in Britain today, and the extent to which it shapes our values, politics and economic life.

At Forest Hill School we condemn all acts of racism and violence and stand united in our commitment to challenge and tackle racism, address inequality and call out discrimination.
