GCSE success for hard working Dame Allan's Schools pupils

24 Aug 2023
School News

Pupils at Dame Allan’s Girls’ and Boys’ Schools are this morning being praised for their hard work after achieving a commendable set of GCSE results. 

More than 60 per cent of exams sat by Year 11 pupils at Dame Allan’s Schools achieved grades 9 – 7 (A* to A) while more than 40 per cent were 9 – 8 grades. One fifth of all exams sat this year achieved a 9, the highest possible grade at GCSE. 

Will Scott, Principal at Dame Allan’s Schools, said: “Pupils at both the Boys’ and the Girls’ Schools have done themselves and the wider Dame Allan’s community proud with these fantastic exam results. 

“Against the backdrop of a return to pre-pandemic grading, we are celebrating an uplift in the combined percentage of 9-7 grades awarded this year compared to in 2019 and are buoyed by the successes of our hard working Year 11 pupils, many of whom balance their studies with an active co-curricular timetable.” 

Dame Allan's Schools are the only schools in the North East following the 'diamond structure' of education, which combines both coeducational and single-sex education. Boys and girls are educated together in the Junior School, separately between the ages of 11 and 16, and together again in the Sixth Form.
