Sixth Form Welcome

Sixth Form is potentially one of the most crucial parts of a person’s education. It helps to define your personality and character; it’s a time when you’re discovering a sense of direction and purpose, and more importantly, a time when you’re beginning to allow your individuality to shine through.

 

At DOYRMS our sixth form students share common aims; to develop academic rigour, close friendships, career ambitions and independence in a caring and lively environment. The staff members who support them are passionate about ensuring that each and every student embraces a sense of possibility in what they can achieve, and has the ambition and confidence to drive themselves forward to be the best they can possibly be.

 

Being a Dukie is a very special credential to have in this competitive world, and past students are fully committed to developing a Dukie network with our current students through development of The Dukies’ Association and the Next Step Programme.

 

Fantastic A level results 2017

This summer has seen our students achieve a fantastic set of A level results, which is a reflection of the hard work and dedication they have put in, along with the support from all of the staff at DOYRMS. We are delighted that our Year 13 students achieved a 95% pass rate with a third of the results at A*-B grades.

 

We are thrilled to see all our students going on to study at university, join the Armed Forces, undertake apprenticeships or take up employment.

 

Of particular note is Denica who achieved 2 A* and 1 A and Joanes who achieved 4 A grades. Special mention should also go to Andrew who has been awarded Dist*D in all three of his Btec courses.

 

Mr Foreman, Headteacher commented, “We are so proud of what our Year 13s have achieved and wish them all the best with the wonderful things they are going to do”. Well done everyone. As you start the next step in your lives we trust you will continue to keep us informed of your careers as they progress.
