Dormers Wells High students have achieved the school’s strongest GCSE results for three years. 58% of pupils have achieved the important benchmark of gaining five or more GCSEs at grades A*-C.
The national press has been warning that, because of recent government changes, schools could face "turmoil" in their results this year. They also warned of “top grades falling to an eight-year low”. We are delighted therefore that our results have shown improvements
40% of all entries were A*-B
63% of all entries were A*-C
Eleven subjects were above or matched the national average including mathematics, biology, computing, geography, history, health and social care.
Among the many individual success stories were Mohamed Alhadi, who earned 7 A*s and 3 As;
Kirandeep Singh (2A*s, 6As and 1B); Sawmyaa Thiruchelvam (5A*s, and 5As); Ebisuobo Koroyin (3A* and 6As); Simran Rai ( 2A*s and 7As); Ali Farah ( 6A*s, 2As and 3Bs); Hanisha Raikhy ( 4A*s, 4As and 2Bs); Uthayakaran Sivalingham (3A*s, 4As and 1B); Areeba Fatima ( 2A*, 5As and 2Bs); Muhammad Umer (8As and 1B); Simone Hall (3A*s, 3As and 2Bs); Avnish Grewal ( 4A*, 2As and 2As and Bs)
A special mention goes to Adwait Raste, a Year 9 student, who earned A* in GCSE mathematics and A* with distinction in further mathematics.
The results we see today round off an amazing year for Dormers Wells High School. The ultimate reward for us all was to see the delight on the faces of students who have reached their considerable potential.
At Dormers Wells High School our core purpose is to ensure we have enabled our young people to confidently take the next steps in their lives and we know that these results will enable them to do so. Results like this do not happen by magic and I would like to formally thank staff, parents and governors for their unwavering support of the school.
This is an exciting period in our development as we look forward with confidence to the future successes.
