Sixth Form Results – Thursday 16th August 2018

It is a fantastic year for the sixth form at Harwich and Dovercourt High School with an outstanding picture of a 100% pass rate for A level students with over 60% achieving A-C grades.  Furthermore, 100% of students applying for university have achieved the results to enable them to take up their places with some remarkable individual successes including one student, Liam Ainger, who achieved an A and three Cs and is now taking up his place reading history at university.

Additionally, a number of vocational course successes will now be going on to apprenticeships and other vocational posts.  Headteacher, Kate Finch, applauded the students, “We are exceptionally proud of the achievements of these young adults and I know that Rob Garrett, Headteacher throughout most of their time in the school, is also very proud.  But these achievements are all about these young people in our community working hard to secure their futures and all of Harwich should be proud.  These students reflect the quality of the local sixth form offer at HDHS, part of the Sigma Trust, which is going from strength to strength.”

GCSE Results – Thursday 23rd August 2018

Harwich and Dovercourt High School Students have experienced some remarkable success in the latest exam series. Chloe Colbourne, Eve Lyons, Kimberly Mulligan, Oliver Wright, Ellie-Rose Bould all achieved the exclusive top grade of 9, higher even than the previous A*

The 2018 summer exam season saw students sitting the new Grade 9-1 GCSEs in all subjects except technology.  Staff worked incredibly hard to prepare students for the new style of exam papers, first seen last year in maths and English only.

The new 9-1 numerical grades do not map across in a simple way to the A*-G grades. This dramatic break from what has gone before means that comparison of this year’s GCSE scores with previous years is meaningless. The headline figures incorporating maths and English grades that schools have quoted in the past consequently cannot be used again.

The 9-1 grades that students have achieved in maths and English and now most other subjects will be used by the Department of Education to calculate Attainment 8 and Progress 8 figures for all schools. These will be available some time in the autumn term.

A Level and BTEC Results – Thursday 17th August 2017

We celebrate outstanding success this year as our A Level and BTEC results come into school. The pass rate for all courses in Year 13 this year is 100% with 50% of results being awarded A/A* or equivalent grades.  Our vocational courses continue to be a real strength of the Sixth Form with students achieving on average a distinction grade in these courses.  A level subjects which have performed extremely well include Psychology and Art, where students were awarded A and A* grades.

We are delighted that these results mean that over 95% of our Year 13 students who applied for university have already secured their places. For some of our other students these results have also meant that they have successfully gained places on apprenticeship courses with local employers. Whilst results are important, as a Sixth Form we are conscious that progression for our students on to the next phase of their lives is equally significant, and we recognise the fantastic achievements of all of our students. 

These results provide a fantastic foundation upon which to build. The school is very proud of the achievements made by its Year 13 students and wishes them every success in their future learning and employment.

GCSE Results – Thursday 24th August 2017

Students at HDHS are celebrating their individual successes today. Students achieved some suburb results and can be justifiably proud of their achievements.

The 2017 summer exam season saw students sitting the new Grade 9-1 GCSEs for the first time in Maths and English. Staff worked incredibly hard to prepare students for examinations that no one had sat or seen.

The Maths and English GCSEs were new exams with different content and exam paper styles. The new 9-1 numerical grades do not map across in a simple way to the A*-G grades. This dramatic break from what has gone before means that any comparison of this year’s GCSE Maths and English scores with previous years is meaningless. The headline figures incorporating Maths and English grades that schools have quoted in the past consequently cannot be used again.

The 9-1 grades that students have achieved in Maths and English and the A*-G grades for their other subjects will be used by the Department of Education to calculate Attainment 8 and Progress 8 figures for all schools. These will be available some time in the Autumn term

Exam Results 2016

GCSE Results – Thursday 25th August 2016

We are very proud of all our students’ hard work and achievement. Our recent ‘Good’ Ofsted judgement validated our school IMG_3705improvement processes and changes we have made in recent years. Overall there has been a slight improvement in our results this year however, this does not do justice to some outstanding departmental results. 70% of our students achieved A*- C in English which for a group who entered the school with below national average SATS score is a great achievement. The school is now well based to build on these successes in future years.

A Level and BTEC Results – Thursday 18th August 2016

‘It has been very pleasing to see our A Level and BTEC results come into school. Our vocational courses continue to be a strength of the Sixth Form with students achieving on average a distinction grade in these courses.  We are delighted that these results mean that over 85% of our year 13 students have already secured University places at this early stage. For some of our other students these results have also meant that they have gained places on apprenticeship courses with local employers. Whilst results are important, as a Sixth Form we are conscious that progression for our students on to the next phase of their lives is equally significant. Subjects which have performed strongly include Media, Design, and English.

These results provide a fantastic foundation upon which to build. The Exam 2016
school is very proud of the achievements made by its year 13 students
and wishes them every success in their future learning and employment.’

Our A Level students achieved a pass rate of 100%.

Over 60% of students achieved A*, A/B or equivalent

Design students achieved 100% Distinction or Distinction* grades.

GCSE Results 2015
Harwich and Dovercourt High School is proud of some exceptional GCSE performances again this year. Many congratulations to our top achievers who include Maggie Brundle, Ellis Janda-Bantick, Tom Wotton, Katie Baker, Romana Baker, Darcie Jobling, Chloe Rotchell, Jess Powell, Emmie Rivers, Harvey Green and Ellie Free.

Rob Garrett, Headteacher said “We are celebrating significant successes for students as well as the school. This year 32 students took Further Maths as well as their GCSE Maths and achieved a 96% pass rate. A*-C pass rates in German and Health and Social Care improved with students making excellent progress in Art, English, Maths, Dance, Design and Business Studies. Congratulations to staff and students for their hard work and for the progress our students have made during their time at the school.”

Overall figures indicate 50% achieved 5 grade C passes or better and 46% gained at least a grade C in both English and Maths. 42% achieved 5 A*-C including English and Maths.

As a school community we are disappointed by some of the headline figures. Over the last few years there has been a gradual improvement in these key indicators. There appears to be a large number of schools nationwide who have experienced unexpected drops in key subject areas. HDHS will also be submitting a large number of examination papers for remarking.These attainment results do not accurately reflect the students’ achievement as collectively they made better than expected progress from their starting points.

We look forward to building on our successes and continuing to improve the school experience for all of our students. The school has committed £600,000 to new teaching facilities which will open in September. We are confident this will lead to further school improvement.

A Level and BTEC Results

A Level Results 2015

‘It has been very pleasing to see our A Level and BTEC results come into school. A Level results are in line with those achieved in 2014 whilst the school has seen a significant increase in the outcomes from its vocational courses. The increase is broadly equivalent to a grade per student. We are delighted that these results mean that over 85% of our year 13 students have already secured University places at this early stage. Subjects which have performed strongly include Media, Design, Business and Technology.

These results provide a fantastic foundation upon which to build. Students re-joining the Post 16 Centre in a few weeks will benefit from a new common room and curriculum centred around their personal iPad. The school is very proud of the achievements made by its year 13 students and wishes them every success in their future learning and employment.’
