The Duke of York's Royal Military School

A co-educational boarding school for students aged 11-18

Celebrating GCSE Results

A 25% increase in the number of students gaining Grades 7-9 at GCSE including English, Maths, and Science, is being celebrated at The Duke of York’s Royal Military School, which further cements its place as one of the highest achieving schools nationally.

Principal Alex Foreman said: “The resilience and determination of our students and staff has led to this amazing set of results, and we congratulate them. Rigorous online learning in place from the start of ‘lockdown one’ and the benefits of our state full boarding environment to keep students safe and focused have greatly contributed to this success. As a top performing non-selective school, our results compare favourably with many of Kent’s leading grammar schools, and most of our GCSE students will be staying on for Sixth Form when we provide university-style accommodation and facilities. While academic achievement is at the forefront, our exceptional co-curricular activities ensure students achieve personal goals, gain good values and prepare for life beyond School.”
