Dartmouth Academy Students Celebrate Improved GCSE Results
The number of students from Dartmouth Academy achieving the key benchmark of five or more A* - C GCSE grades rose to 93 per cent, up from 68 per cent in 2011: a 25 per cent increase. This is the second year in a row Dartmouth Academy has posted a record score for this measure.
Maths saw big improvements: jumping from 32 per cent achieving A*- C to 59 per cent in 2012. Science saw a similar jump: from 42 per cent of students achieving two A*-C grades to 85 per cent. PE saw all passes in GCSE and BTEC courses rise from 47 to 99 per cent.
Nick Hindmarsh, Principal at Dartmouth Academy, said: “We’ve had a fantastic year here at Dartmouth Academy and I am delighted with the students’ results. The 25 per cent growth in the number of students achieving five or more A* - C GCSE grades is a credit to the hard work put in by our students and staff throughout the year.
“We said after last year’s results that we would see significant improvements this year, and that has been borne out.”
