DOYRMS students celebrate GCSE success
Students and staff at the Duke of York’s Royal Military School, near Dover, 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.
Alex Foreman, the school’s Principal, 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 Nogotkov, who secured ten Grade 9, one Grade 8; Toby Thorne with ten Grade 9; Charlotte Higgs gained ten Grade 9; Joshua Anetor with seven Grade 9, two Grade 8; Ethel Tendo gained seven Grade 9, two Grade 8; Ellie Bennett 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 the school continues to grow its Sixth Form.
