Jumping for joy: Forest School students celebrate their results


Forest School is ‘delighted’ after nine of their students were accepted onto courses at Oxbridge universities.

The school’s number of Oxbridge applications to offers made is more than 41% - twice the national average.

Six more students found themselves accepted onto courses at some of the most prestigious medical schools in the country - with 79 per cent of grades awarded to the students being A*, A or B.

Jonathan Mitchell, deputy head academic at the school, on college place, said: “With nearly four in every ten pupils earning three or more A* and A grades at A Level, this is another exceptional year for Forest School. “We are very proud of the commitment and drive of our pupils, and also of the care and support provided by their dedicated teachers.”

Year 13 student, Alex Coombs, who will be studying archaeology and anthropology at Oxford said he would miss the school.

“I’m so happy with my results. I will definitely miss Forest and all my friends here, but I am looking forward to university,” said Alex.
