"A" FOR "AMAZING"
At St. Dominic’s Grammar School we are very proud of our consistently high GCSE and A-Level results. Each year we attain 100% pass rate at both GCSE and A-Level with top grades improving all the time. Our results continue to increase with extra value added despite a drop in national statistics. This is due to our individualised approach to our students and meticulous tracking to ensure each child reaches their full potential.
The English Baccalaureate was a measure devised by red brick universities as the required GCSE results in subjects that enabled students to progress onto their prestigious courses at the top universities. At St. Dominic’s Grammar School we have proudly been No. 1 for ALL schools in Staffordshire (independent and state) for a number of years for our EBacc. results!
Despite our impressive headline figures (see below), we believe that the true measure for any school is found in its value added data. This data measures how far a child has progressed from their starting point and is especially useful from GCSE to A-Level. This measurement is published by the Department of Education for every school. Consistently each year, St. Dominic’s Grammar School outperforms virtually every local school in this important area. This evidences that whatever a child’s ability, we work incredibly hard to ensure that they reach their full potential at every level.
