The school, in Harbourer Road, Hainault, was thrilled to announce 50 per cent of pupils had achieved five A*-C grades, including English and Maths, with progress made in both those subjects also well above the national average.

Headteacher Will Thompson said: “Today is a proud day for all involved at the Forest Academy.

“Our results have significantly improved from the previous year. It shows our relentless focus on students outcomes and progress has paid off.

“It is important that time is taken to reflect on these results and celebrate accordingly. As we begin to unpick the headlines, the individual stories come to the fore - the students who have battled against the odds to achieve.

“Today we celebrate them, and we celebrate the wonderful staff that have made these stories possible.”
