This summer, 63 per cent of students gained five A*-C GCSE grades including Maths and English, compared to 60 per cent last year.

The school, which is part of the Burnt Mill Co-operative Academy Trust (BMAT), also saw 65 per cent of students achieve A*-C grades in their Maths and English exams - the best in its history.

Top performers included Carl Parsons, who achieved eight A*/A grades, Bradley Adams Stock, who scored six A*/A grades, Sarah Keefe, who got three As and six Bs, and Ellie Moore, with four As and five Bs.

Stephen Hehir, head of 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.”
