The entire year 11 cohort at The Forest Academy will continue into post-16 education after receiving their GCSE and Vocational Level 2 exam results today. 

Will Mackintosh, principal at the Hainault-based academy, said the results were “thoroughly deserved” and thanked staff for working “tirelessly” to support students through the grading process. 

He said: “There were wonderful scenes of delight and celebration when the students collected their results this morning.

“All of the students should be really proud of their achievements – they have been a pleasure to work with, and are a credit to themselves, their families and the whole Forest Academy community.” 

Nichita Condorachi, who received 7-9 grades in all his subjects, said his teachers had been “amazing” and that they “help everyone, no matter what their challenges”.
