GCSE results: Two students achieve the incredible with 24 A*s between them at Forest School

A third of GCSE results at Forest School were an A* grade - an increase of five percent on the previous year.

Two students achieved the incredible with 12 A*s each making Freddie Hings and Ying Li the top performing pupils at the school in Snaresbrook.

Freddie said: “I am obviously relieved. This is so fantastic, and all on my mother’s birthday – what a gift for her”

Four pupils received 11 A*s each, and six students got 10 A* a piece.

Amy Wildgoose, who received 10 A* grades, said: “I cried when I saw my results. It was a little confusing seeing all of those grades on one sheet of paper, but once it was all explained to me, I knew it was okay in the end. I’m off to the Reading Festival to celebrate”.

Overall 76 percent of pupils receive one or more A*s and 92 percent achieve A* to B grades.

Sarah Kerr-Dineen, warden at the school in College Place, said: “The fact that this year group is also one of the most heavily committed outside the classroom also adds weight to our belief here at Forest that busy pupils excel”.
