Thanks to the role of teachers, my son's generation are far more accepting than my generation where homophobic bullying was prevalent not just among students but also many staff. My son has yet to see homophobia against any person at FHS.

Thank you for raising this with your students. Homophobic crime is horrible and needs to be stamped out. Education is important and key to opening minds to acceptance 😀👏🏼

School Performance

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 –

Year 10 -

Tommy Collins for achieving a grade 6 in Spanish and a grade 7 in history
Dennis Elsley for achieving a grade 8 in Spanish
Mame Seck for achieving a grade 6 in geography
Armani-Jai Newman for achieving a grade 8 in French

Year 9 -

Beni Bafwa for achieving a grade 6 in geography
Tabitha Tidiman for achieving a grade 7 in music
Fabrizio Morrone for achieving an A* in Italian
Libby Down for achieving a grade 7 in photography


2017

Forest Hall School is celebrating GCSE results above the national average for the third year running.

The 2017 summer exam season saw students sitting the new grade 9 to 1 GCSEs for the first time in maths and English, with staff having to prepare students for examinations no one had sat or seen.

The maths and English GCSEs were new exams with different content and exam paper styles. The new 9 to 1 numerical grades do not map across in a simple way to the A* to G grades. This dramatic break from what has gone before means any comparison of this year’s GCSE maths and English scores with previous years is meaningless. The headline figures incorporating maths and English grades which schools have quoted in the past consequently cannot be used again.

The 9 to 1 grades students have achieved in maths and English and the A* to G grades for their other subjects will be used by the Department for Education to calculate Attainment 8 and Progress 8 figures for all schools. These will be available in the autumn term.

This summer, 77% of students achieved a high standard in the new English language GCSE exams, while in GCSE maths, 67% achieved a similar standard.

The school, in Forest Hall Road, Stansted, became part of the Burnt Mill Co-operative Academy Trust (BMAT) in 2015 with a mission to boost student numbers and exam results and has consistently achieved it over the last three years.

Since joining BMAT, the school has seen huge changes implemented, including Saturday school and revision sessions after school in all subjects to ensure students are able to achieve their best.

Stephen Hehir, head of Forest Hall since BMAT adopted the school, said: “Once again, it gives me so much pleasure to congratulate my students on their fantastic achievement in the summer 2017 series of examinations. This year marks the third year in a row that GCSE results at Forest Hall School are above the national average. I applaud all my students, their teachers and their parents for this wonderful achievement.

“The message this sends out to everyone in the community is that at Forest Hall School all our students work hard and this allows them to achieve their highest potential. At Forest Hall School, we believe in ALL of our students and ALL of our students know they can be hugely successful.”

High achieving students in Year 11 this year include -

  • Daisy Pearce-Allen ten higher grade GCSEs, including Grade 8 in English language, A in religious education and drama.
  • Dominic Estrellas ten higher grade GCSEs, including A* in photography, Distinction* in ICT, Grade 7 in English literature.
  • Hannah Parson ten higher grade GCSEs, including six A*/A grades, including A* in additional science and textiles and A grades in geography, further science, history and core science.
  • Lukas Wallis ten higher grade GCSEs, including A in Spanish and Grade 7 in English literature.
  • Finnbarr Ambrose nine higher grade GCSEs, including A in PE, Distinction in ICT, Grade 7 in English literature and B in additional science, resistant materials, English language and core science.

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

Year 10 high achievers include - 

Gorka Comet-Ologaray A* in French and Spanish

Mami Seck A in PE and sociology

Amelia Beck A in drama, B in geography

Marcia Amaral-Cardoso A* in Portuguese, B in business studies

Year 9 high achievers include -

Dennis Elsley A in ICT

Armani-Jai Newman A in geography

 

2016

For the second year running, Forest Hall School has achieved its best ever GCSE results.

This summer, 65% of students achieved A* to C grades in their GCSE exams in their English and maths – the best in the school’s history.

A total of 64% of students achieved five or more A* to C grades including English and maths, compared to 60% last year.

The school, in Forest Hall Road, Stansted, became part of the Burnt Mill Co-operative Academy Trust (BMAT) on February 1, 2015 with a mission to boost student numbers and exam results.

Stephen Hehir, head of school since BMAT adopted the school, said: “I am once again thrilled for the students, staff, parents/carers and everyone connected with the Forest Hall School community.

“For me, it is so important that students in every year group have the potential to be successful and these results will allow the class of 2016 the opportunity to continue this success.

“My message to the class of 2016 at Forest Hall School is a big well done for all your hard work.”

 

Star students in Year 11 this year include:

  • Bradley Adams Stock for achieving six A*/A grades (including A* in religious education and As in subjects including mathematics, biology, chemistry and physics)
  • Sarah Keefe for achieving three A grades (including As in maths, geography and biology) and six B grades
  • Ellie Moore for achieving four A grades (including As in English language, maths, religious education and geography) and five B grades.
  • Carl Parsons for achieving eight A*/A grades (including A*s in biology, computing and maths)

 

Success also came 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.

Every student in Year 9 who took GCSE Spanish achieved A* to C grades and 100% of students in Year 10 who took religious education achieved A* to C grades.

Mr Hehir said: “These excellent results in lower year groups at Forest Hall School show the tremendous work ethic all years in the school now have and how achieving the highest grades is the aspiration for all FHS students.”
