Students celebrate GCSE success

Students and staff are celebrating great results at GCSE with an increase in Grade 9 including English, Maths, and Science, and more than a quarter of the cohort have been offered Sixth Form scholarships.

Principal Alex Foreman said: “Despite all the educational debate, we were actually expecting excellent results this year as grades have been rising since we introduced new teaching and learning methods three years ago. Our hard-working students have not let us down, and we congratulate them. We are ranked in the top 2% of schools national for progress and, as a top performing non-selective school, our results compare favourably with many of Kent’s leading grammar schools. We believe our successful combination of academic focus and exceptional extra-curricular activities ensure our students can achieve their personal goals along with good values and life skills.”

Outstanding individual success includes Anton, who secured ten Grade 9, one Grade 8; Toby with ten Grade 9; Charlotte gained ten Grade 9; Joshua with seven Grade 9, two Grade 8; Ethel gained seven Grade 9, two Grade 8; Ellie with four Grade 9, four Grade 8, one Grade 6.

Twenty-six students have been offered academic scholarships to study A Levels at the School. Furthermore, additional scholarships have been offered to external applicants as DOYRMS continues to grow its Sixth Form.

There are a limited number of 80% scholarships for external Sixth Form students on a full or weekly boarding basis. Applicants should have achieved eight GCSEs including Maths and English, five of which need to be at Grade 7 or above. Please contact the school on 01304 245073 for more details.
