Key Stage 4 Results

Students have achieved a very good set of GCSE results this year, 65% of our 209 cohort achieving the standard pass of grade 4 and above in English and Maths.  English, Maths and Science were all above 70% at the standard pass.   43% of students achieved a strong pass in English and Maths at grade 5 and above (C+/B).  22% of all grades were achieved by students at the highest 9 or A*/A grades which is expected to be higher than the national average.


These excellent results by students are well deserved.  They responded brilliantly to all the changes to GCSE examinations and have been rewarded by their individual and collective successes as a year group.


The results reflect outstanding teaching and underline our extremely high aspirations for every student at Dowdales.  Students have been ably supported by talented, hard-working staff, determined to support students to be the best that they can be.  Parents and carers have also played their part in supporting their individual son or daughter, everyone committed to the school’s continuing success.
