Success at The Downs School

This is another fantastic set of results for The Downs School. Over 74% of students achieved A*-C including English and Mathematics and over 82% of students achieved 5 A*-C, with over 32% of total entries awarded A*/A grades and 99% of students achieving A*-G.

Headteacher Chris Prosser said, “We are so delighted for this group of students; they have worked so hard to achieve this excellent set of results and maintained the strong tradition of excellence that we have come to expect at the Downs School. The key ingredients of this success have been high quality teaching and learning, determined and committed students and staff, and a strong partnership with our parents. As a school community we feel a huge sense of achievement because we know that all our Year 11 students now have the skills and attributes to allow them to achieve success in the next stage of their careers, and I am pleased to say that the majority of them will be continuing this with us at the Downs.”
