All students and staff at DSTC are celebrating their best ever GCSE results. 69% have achieved 5 GCSEs grade A* – C with 58% of students achieving 5 A* – C with English, Maths and Science, a 7% increase on last year.

There were significant improvements in the Science results where 78% of students achieved grade C or above and in Maths; where 69% achieved grade C or above. There are many students celebrating outstanding results. These include; Ellen Collins 5 A*s, 2 As, 1B, Demi Derby 4 A*s, 3 As, 2Bs, Dimasha Perera 1 A*, 6 As and 3 Bs. However particular congratulations go to Jordan Madge who achieved 7As and 2Bs but also an A grade in GCE A level Maths which she took two years early.

The outgoing Principal Mr Seamus Murphy, who is joining OFSTED as an HMI in September, has praised the performance of students and staff. “Since joining DSTC in 2011, I have seen the results improve by 10% and the school move from the bottom 25% to the top 25% in the country for progress of all students. In addition this year, there has been an increase in the both the number of A and A* grades.

I am extremely proud that so many of our students have achieved such excellent results. They now have a strong foundation to build their future and I would like to wish them every success and expect DSTC to go from strength to strength. I also wish the staff and the acting principal Ms Alison Chapman the best of luck in the next academic year.”
