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, near Dover, 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.”

Outstanding individual success includes Ben Thorne, who secured eight Grade 9, one Grade 7; Noming Limbu with seven Grade 9, one Grade 7; Sydnee Arundale gained five Grade 9, three Grade 8, one Grade 7; Archie Hendry with four Grade 9, four Grade 8, one Grade 7; Prashanta Rai gained four Grade 9, four Grade 8, one Grade 7; Hanniel Saumaka with four Grade 9, two Grade 8, three Grade 7.

Twenty students have been offered academic scholarships to study A Levels at the school, and there are a limited number of 80% scholarships for external students to join its Sixth Form on a full or weekly boarding basis. Applicants should have achieved a minimum of three Grade 8 and three Grade 7, including Maths and English. Please contact the school on 01304 245073 for more details.
