There were beaming smiles and tears of joy this morning at the Dixie Grammar School as students, families and teachers celebrated an outstanding set of GCSE results. Despite the turmoil of the last couple of years, Dixie students have once again proved quite how exceptional they are: over 20% of grades were at the very highest Grade 9, over 60% were grade 7-9 and half of our students averaged above Grade 7 for all their exams, .
Special mention should be made of those gaining an average score greater than Grade 8 – Amber Cadman, Evie Gibbons, Isabelle Riley, Rebecca Kennedy, Emily Moyo, Nadia Gauhar and Miles Pulsford who managed a remarkable clean sweep of ten grades at the highest Grade 9.
Mr Richard Lynn, Headmaster, commented, “These results are astounding and reflect the talent, resilience and fortitude of this wonderful group of students. I could not be more proud of how all our students and our entire school community have responded to the challenges of the last two and a half years in particular. This talented cohort will return in two weeks to our Sixth Form, with newly installed dedicated study space and refurbished Sixth Form facilities, ahead of a brand new Sixth Form Centre to be constructed this year. We look forward to welcoming them along with those joining us from elsewhere and know that the family environment within the school, our small class sizes at A level and the care and attention Sixth Form tutors are able to give each student mean that they will be going on to receive the very best teaching, support and guidance.”
