Dover Grammar School for Girls A Level Results 2020

    20th Aug 2020

    Students at Dover Grammar School for Girls have received their A Level results and have celebrated with staff both their results and their future plans. Students have received confirmation of places at their universities of choice and are leaving to study a range of subjects including Astrophysics, Veterinary Medicine, Sound Engineering and Music, Marine Biology and Oceanography and Politics and International Relations. Many will also begin their life in the world of work.

    Mr Benson, Headteacher says:

    “This has been a very different results day for students here at DGGS, as it has been across the country, and the results for this year’s A level cohort have once again shown the dedication of our Sixth Form students. This year, students have benefitted from our new 3+ curriculum, balancing high quality teaching and learning in 3 chosen subjects with additional options such as EPQ, work experience, additional academic subject study and leadership opportunities. This holistic approach to learning within our large and vibrant Sixth Form ensures students leaving the school have a broad and valuable skills set to equip them for the next stage of their lives.

    While there are many individual successes, overall results have not been reflective of the changes to the curriculum over the last 2 years or the hard work of our students and, for some students, this has led to disappointment. Where students have been downgraded from the Centre Assessed Grades (CAGs) as a result of the government algorithm implemented by the exam boards we have supported students through appeals and communication with the universities and colleges and work placements to ensure they are not disadvantaged.

    Overall, I am extremely proud of the way in which these young people have continued to focus and develop their expertise in preparation for the range of onward destinations over the lockdown period. We wish them every success in the next stage of their lives and look forward to hearing about their future successes.”
