Progress 8 - New Forest Academy Results             E-Safety             Careers Information          Uniform Standards & Diary Dates



We are delighted to announce that the Ofsted report for New Forest Academy is now published on the Ofsted website.

We are all very proud that the school has been rated ‘Good’ in all areas. 

This is a real achievement for students and staff who have worked incredibly hard to make New Forest Academy a good school.

I was especially heartened by the 112 parent and 60 student questionnaires that were completed; this showed amazing commitment from the local community that we serve. One parent commended the ‘dedicated’ staff who ‘inspire pupils.’ This heartfelt response is precisely why we continue to be wholly committed to providing the very best education for local children and their families.

The inspectors said:

"Pupils are proud of their school and the contributions that they make to help refine and develop it.  They are respectful to each other and behave well in and out of lessons."

"Leaders have shaped a broad and balanced curriculum that meets the needs of the pupils."

New Forest Academy Students Achieve Impressive Grades in New Tougher GCSEs

New Forest Academy students have achieved impressive GCSE grades in a broad range of subjects.  69% students achieved the standard pass in English and maths in the new tougher GCSE system.

The government has raised the bar by making GCSEs tougher than ever. It therefore gives us great pleasure to announce that our students have done themselves proud. Their hard work, dedication and commitment have secured for them a bright and prosperous future as they plan the next stage of their education, employment and training. We wish them well as they move to pastures new.  

The following students:  Abby Bentley, Lia Bourne, Stephen Faithful, Ethan Hawkins, Bradley Hayward and Katie Shearer also made exceptional progress in that they achieved more than 1 grade above the national average across 8 subjects based on their starting points. This is what the government calls the new progress measure. Individual students who have made exceptional progress include: Adam Prince, Ryan Morgan and Nancy Braithwaite, all of whom on average achieved a grade and a half above their peers across 8 subjects.  We commend them for their impressive achievements.

We pride ourselves on being a fully comprehensive school placed at the heart of the community. We want all of our students to be happy, ambitious and achieve results that reflect their true potential. We place great emphasis on community spirit and developing young people to make a valuable contribution to society and understand the important role that they play as responsible citizens. We value equality of opportunity and giving all students of all abilities access to a wide range of opportunities and enrichment.
