Exam Success

Posted on March 23 2016

Parents at Forest Park are most fortunate with the wide choice of highly respected secondary schools available in the area and we aim to help them choose the right school for their child. The Forest Park curriculum goes beyond the demands of the National Curriculum. Our bench mark is the entrance examinations to the area's leading schools including Manchester Grammar School, Withington Girls' School, Altrincham Grammar School for Boys, Altrincham Grammar School for Girls and Sale Grammar School.

We are once again extremely proud of our academic success, with the examination achievements of our Year Six children in 2015/16. Eighty percent of these children have been offered places to local grammar schools including; Altrincham Grammar Schools for Boys, Altrincham Grammar Schools for Girls, Sale Grammar and Manchester Grammar School. This is the sixth consecutive year that at least eighty percent of our children have secured a future within a grammar school. Well done to all the staff and children for helping us to achieve this accolade.

A priority for Forest Park is to help guide and prepare our children for future schools. Being an independent school enables us to tailor our teaching and learning to meet the needs of the Forest Park child. A large part of this need is to communicate with parents about what the next stage of education is best suited to the child. Emphasis in discussions is placed on the holistic picture of the child. We aim to provide professional advice and help your child achieve their best.

In Years 3 to 6, we focus on breadth and balance and ensure that children enjoy their time at school. We are also mindful of the necessity to prepare pupils for the important secondary school examinations they face in Year 6.

The preparation for these examinations is a gradual process. Children are taught the ability to use and apply knowledge, and to have well practised exam technique. We tailor our curriculum to include more reasoning skills and numerical logic, problem solving, comprehension technique and spelling punctuation and grammar. We aim to develop happy young people who have the confidence and learning skills to cope with the demands of whichever senior school they move on to.

Whichever secondary school the children at Forest Park move on to, we are secure that they have been well prepared and have the skills required in order to succeed.
