Reflecting on the outstanding results, Headteacher, Ms Roisin Walsh said: 'We are delighted with our students' achievements today, which reflect their talents, combined with their hard work and motivation. Once again I want to pay a special tribute to all our staff at Dormers Wells High School for their tireless dedication to pupil achievement.'
Ms Walsh also wanted to thank all the parents, carers and the families of Dormers Wells High School students whose invaluable support and work with the school ensures this high achievement. This partnership will continue as the majority of our young people progress onto Sixth Form.
Our opportunity to celebrate individual pupil achievement will take place on Thursday 12 September at our annual Awards Evening.
