St. Dominic’s still amongst the elite

6th December 2018

The Sunday Times Schools Guide 2019 is out and we are delighted to tell you that we have retained our top 40 ranking. Yes, St. Dominic’s is still one of the best schools in the country.

We have been ranked highest of any independent or grammar school in the area – achieving 33rd place in The Sunday Times Schools Guide 2019.

Maintaining a top 50 spot in the new publication, which identifies the 2,000 highest achieving schools in the UK based on recent examination results, following our inclusion last year is a tremendous achievement.

School head, Peter McNabb, says: “We are absolutely delighted with our ranking which confirms our place as one of the leading schools in the country – we are immensely proud of our record and our place among the elite.

“The guide is based on examination success and lists the top 2,000 primary and secondary schools in both the independent and state sectors.

“We appreciate that attending St. Dominic’s is a choice and are really pleased to see our school ranked so highly not just within the area, but also the country.

“I think it is important to recognise all the hard work that is put in to making St. Dominic’s a continuing success, our dedicated members of staff, governors, parents and students.

“We have excellent teaching and support staff but there are so many other people who ensure St. Dominic’s operates at optimum efficiency on a daily basis.

“From maintenance to administration, catering, cleaning and driving – they all play a vital role as part of the St. Dominic’s family. The support of our governors and parents is invaluable and of course the achievements of our students can’t be underestimated – after all, it is they who sit the exams.

“Once again we achieved a 100% pass rate which has reinforced our position in this highly regarded national table.

“We have seen some major changes at the school over the last couple of years which have allowed us to maintain the high standards expected of St. Dominic’s and our results continue to speak for themselves.”
