Year 11 Results 

Dunraven school is very pleased to report a strong set of GCSE results today.  I want to say a proper well done to Year 11 for the resilience, optimism and character they have shown throughout their GCSE studies. I also want to congratulate them on their significant achievements today. Today is theirs. 


Days like these are for celebrating and we are particularly pleased to report that a higher proportion of students than ever before at Dunraven achieved a pass grade in both English and Mathematics in exam conditions. 


More Dunraven students achieved the top grades of 9, 8 or 7 this year than any other year since the current exam system came into existence. Students’ success is visible across our broad curriculum with over 4 out of 5 GCSE grades across subjects at a pass grade meaning overwhelmingly that our students are pursuing their ambitions and dreams as they take their next steps. 


These achievements are all the more impressive given that this group of young people has experienced more disruption than any set of students in recent history. They have spent the past two-and-a-half years under the shadow of the coronavirus pandemic and we need little reminder of the impact this has had on their learning. Given these particular challenges while we could single out individual names it feels more appropriate to say a collective thank you and well done to all of our Year 11 students. They have been brilliant. 


Days like today are also a time to say thank you to our staff team and you, as families at home, for all of the encouragement to overcome difficult moments along the way. Whether returning to our Sixth Form or taking next steps elsewhere, we hope every Year 11 student feels ready: we wish them the very best for what comes next.


To any students who need support, our team is here for you and I would encourage you to contact the school should you have any concerns or need support with destinations. 


So, well done to our Year 11 who have a very bright future ahead of them. Well done for their serious academic achievements, for being the best versions of themselves and for making the school a positive place to be - physically and virtually - over the last five years.
