The Forest Academy in Hainault is delighted to report on brilliant GCSE exam results achieved by the students this summer. Results have improved rapidly since external examinations last took place in 2019.
There has been a 16% increase in the number of students gaining strong passes in English and Maths GCSE, and attainment and progress figures are now well above national averages.

Will Mackintosh, Principal, said: “We are so proud of our students, who have performed exceptionally well in their exams this year. These rapid improvements are down to great teaching across the school and the students putting in hard work every day. They have been a pleasure to work with, and are a credit to themselves, their families and the Forest Academy community.

The students deserve the grades that they have received, and there were wonderful scenes as the students collected their results this morning – even some ‘singing in the rain’.

We look forward to welcoming many of them back in September to the Beal 6th Form which is based at Forest Academy and Beal High School.”

Runisa Rashid who was awarded 9 GCSEs at grade 7 or above said: “I’m grateful for all of the teachers who helped and supported me to get here”. She is going to Beal 6th form to study 3 A-levels.

Dawson Bailey, who was awarded 7 GCSEs at grade 7 or above, said: “I am so happy – the school pushed me and allowed me to achieve my full potential – thank you to everyone at The Forest Academy”. Dawson has enrolled for Beal 6th form.

Ryan Standing was delighted with his results and to be staying for 6th form. Ryan, who has been at TFA since year 7 and has not let anything hold him back during his time at secondary school said “I am really happy with my results. I would like to thank my teachers for their support which now means I can go to 6th form”.

The vast majority of our Year 11 students are staying at Beal 6th form, either at The Forest Academy or Beal High School campus. All others are completing high-quality apprenticeships or will attend local colleges.
