Dartford Grammar School, already celebrating record IB Results for its older students, was delighted by the GCSE success of its year 11 students.
With 100% of boys scoring 5 or more A*-C grades, the school was also pleased that almost 70% gained 5+ A*-A grades, and over 94% achieved the English Baccalaureate. At a time when language results, especially among boys, are a national cause for concern, DGS saw over 97% gain A*-Cs in foreign languages, most of these with two languages. Several students gained a sweep of all A* or A grades in every subject, including Sam Butler, Simon Bate, George Frake, Kevin Fung, Shaquille Gilpin, Evan Lebell, Tom Owen, Jay Patel and Henry Walsh.
We are proud of our students, and we are proud of their achievements”, said Headmaster John Oakes, “DGS aims to be the very best in everything we do, and it’s important to remember that alongside every set of great exam grades, there’s a committed and focussed young adult, with a full set of 21st century skills, ready to succeed in the sixth form and beyond.”
