GCSE Results 2022Posted: 25th August 2022
Young people have learnt lifelong skills of commitment, drive and resilience during the pandemic, according to their proud headteacher.
As Year 11 students returned to collect their GCSE results today, their headteacher paid tribute to their hard work.
The cohort of young people have endured lockdowns and school closures during their GCSE preparation years.
They are the first year group since 2019 to sit their exams, with previous students being awarded their grades based on teacher assessment.
Headteacher Matt Carter said: “These excellent results represent many years of learning and hard work from our young people and the staff at Forest Hall School. Their achievements are richly deserved and we are extremely proud of all of our young people.
“Forest Hall students have shown great commitment, drive and resilience throughout their courses, especially given the significant challenges they have encountered over the last two years. These personal qualities will stand them in good stead as they move onto their next stage of learning.
“I am now tremendously excited about the range of exciting destinations to which our students will now progress to, and we will ensure they receive the support needed to find their path.
“We look forward to seeing and hearing about their future successes.”
The school is celebrating 62 per cent of students achieving a grade 4 in both English and maths, with 43 per cent achieving the strong grade 5 pass in both English and maths.
In engineering, 100 per cent of students passed with a grade 4 or above; in photography, 97 per cent achieved grade 4 or above; and in art, 90 per cent achieved grade 4 and higher.
Students have also achieved “significant improvements” in subjects such as geography, combined science and separate science.
Among the students celebrating success today are:
- Kei Allen
- Moses Brett
- Grace Cooper
- Aimee Dulieu
- Emelia Linwood
- James Ship
- Chloe Slocombe
Kayleigh Trainor, assistant headteacher, said: “I couldn’t be prouder of all of the students at Forest Hall School as they collect their results.
“They have shown that they are resilient and can overcome challenges to ensure they achieve their potential - even when times have been tough.
“They are an exceptional year group and have utilised the support of their teachers and additional sessions over the exam period.
“Every student collecting their results should be very proud of what they have achieved; I know I certainly am.”
