Dormers Wells High School is celebrating again, with the best set of Year 11 results to date.
This year we are delighted to report an excellent set of examination results for many of our Year 11 leavers.
69% of students achieved a 9 to 4 (A*-C equivalent) in English and mathematics.
We were particularly delighted at the high number of the top grades, in a year which has seen such changes with more rigorous course content with 50% of students gaining the top grades (5+) in English and mathematics.
This is the highest figure the school has ever achieved, placing the school in the top 5% of schools in the country for our 9-5 "strong pass" grades in English and mathematics.
After all the hard work, it's now time to think about the next stage of their education and we are delighted to welcome back many of our Year 11 students when they join DWHS Sixth Form to take on the challenges of A level and BTEC courses.
