PRESS RELEASE The Charles Dickens School GCSE Results 2022Posted on: 25/08/2022
CDS would like to congratulate their Year 11 pupils on their achievements.
Warren Smith, Headteacher said, “This year’s results represent the school’s best performance since Attainment 8 and Progress 8 were introduced in 2016. This is testament to the hard work of our pupils and our staff in preparing them for their exams. It reflects the strength of the learning culture we have established here. It is important to remember that this year’s Year 11 experienced significant disruption to their education during the pandemic, through lockdowns, and pupil and teacher absence through illness. I admire greatly the resilience shown by these young people, for refusing to allow COVID to derail their aspirations. We send them all our very best wishes for their next steps.”
