Following on from last week’s outstanding A-level grades, students at Dunottar School were today celebrating an excellent set of GCSE results, in which 12 per cent of all grades attained were grade 9 and 50 per cent the top grades 9-7. This is especially impressive as our students comprise a range of academic abilities.
Headmaster, Mr Mark Tottman, said: “I am delighted with this outstanding set of GCSE results and our positive value-added scores demonstrate that students studying at Dunottar are likely to achieve better exam results than if they had studied the same course elsewhere. Despite the uncertainty of the last two years, students have displayed true warrior learner characteristics to navigate these challenges. These results are testament to their commitment to learning, resilience and positivity, the belief and dedication of our teaching staff and the support of the Dunottar community.
I am incredibly proud of Dunottar students for their individual achievements. They have not only enjoyed academic success but have triumphed in sport, are talented musicians and performers and enthusiastic participants in the school’s extensive co-curricular programme. Equipped with a strong set of values and self-belief, these young adults are role models and leaders. I look forward to welcoming them, along with our new Sixth Form joiners, to the next stage of their education in our Sixth Form.”
Dunottar inspires students to be their best and achieve grades well beyond expectations through its nurturing, collaborative, creative and dynamic learning environment. As a first-choice independent school in the local area, we are very proud of our history, our state-of-the-art facilities and our commitment to our students’ continued success.
