It is a pleasure to report on the excellent GCSE results achieved by Alleynians this year. Dulwich College have upheld in Year 11 and surpassed in Year 10 the fine showing of last year’s cohorts.
85% of all papers sat by Year 11 pupils this Summer have been graded A or A*, 53% of those at A*. 151 of our 208 boys have been awarded at least eight A*s and As, and 64 of them have achieved eight A*s or better. Once again, the collective performance reflects the excellent work of a year group we expect to excel in the Upper School. Mr Martin Geach, Head of Year 11, comments: “This is a very heartening set of results from a cohort of boys who have made a particularly impressive contribution to the co-curricular life of the College while maintaining their focus on their academic work.”
For the boys in Year 10 who took one, two or three GCSEs a year early, 97% of results are A*s (up from 92% last year) and their other results grade As.
Dr Nick Black, Head of Middle School, writes: “Beyond the headline figures are many individual personal triumphs, often among the boys who have sometimes found the academic demands of school challenging, and I take this opportunity to congratulate them as warmly as any of their peers and to thank our dedicated teachers and supportive parents, without whom the boys know they would not have achieved so much”.
I echo Dr Black’s expression of gratitude and congratulation to all our boys, teachers and parents.
Overall, this is a great set of results.
Dr Joe Spence, Master of Dulwich College
