Forest Hill Students Put GCSE Results On An Upward Trajectory
Forest Hill students’ 2018 attainment is above last year’s national average
We are delighted to be able to share some excellent good news stories from Forest Hill School students after their GCSE results were handed out this morning.
Outcomes for our boys were markedly improved this year, a fact which reflects the incredible hard work put in by them and their teachers, to say nothing of the support at home! Forest Hill students’ 2018 attainment is above last year’s national average, with many subjects posting excellent results.
As always there are a range of amazing stories and achievements throughout the school. It is impossible for us to share them all, but we have included a range of them on this page. As well as congratulating the many students who achieved a range of the highest grades, it is also worth noting the excellent progress made by some of our boys.
In particular, Mohammed Chowdhury who achieved the highest progress in the school. We are estimating that he achieved almost 4 grades better than his expected grade from the Department for Education – an astonishing set of results!
Of particular note was a 70% improvement in the pass rate in Drama alongside 20% improvements in Photography and Spanish and 15% in Art and Geography. English and Maths grades again improved with the pass rate in English going up another 11% which means it has improved 20% over the last two years. Maths has improved by 17% in the same period.
The number of students getting the top grades also increased with the percentages of students achieving both grades 8-9 (the old A*) and grade 7 (the old A) up 5%. Our students excelled again in Physics with 10 achieving the new top grade of 9 (with another 10 getting grade 8). In Maths there were 9 students with grade 9 and a remarkable 19 with grade 8!
We are extremely proud of the boys for excelling throughout the most difficult period in the school’s history. We are clear that their success is evidence that our motto ’Aspiring to excellence together’ is one that all members of the school community buy into, and that the school is firmly on track on its journey to greater success.
