Year 9 GCSE Package


We are pleased to announce the launch of our 3-year GCSE course from September 2022. An ideal option for those pupils who have academic potential. This will give them the chance to excel in an environment consisting of small class sizes, a very experienced teaching team, weekly peer and personal staff mentors and excellent behaviour. At St Dominic’s Grammar School we believe in maximising every pupil’s potential and giving them time to study their subjects in-depth as well as the time to learn around the subject.

Having a good experience through the GCSE years prepares pupils for A-levels and university. Each round of examinations builds the foundations for the next step. For many years we have demonstrated an excellent record of GCSE results, A-Level grades and accessing red brick universities.

At St Dominic’s Grammar School you have the additional reassurance of knowing that we provide excellent pastoral support alongside our academic success. We believe in providing a well-rounded education, that encompasses all that is important. Excellent exam results alone are not always indicators of future success, but key skills such as resilience and mental well-being are. We fully embrace our motto of inspiring growth in Mind, Body, and Spirit and always view each pupil as a whole and not simply their academic achievements.

Our entrance exam for Year 9 entry in September 2022 is on Saturday 5th February 2022. Please apply to admissions either by email to or call 01902 850248 to discuss your child’s future. If you would like more information, or a personal tour of the school, please contact us.
