We are proud of the excellent academic results that our Boys’ School achieves consistently each year. We are consistently in the top schools for academic performance for Newcastle upon Tyne and the North East. Our boys achieve impressive results not only in comparison to national results, but set themselves ambitious goals for themselves as individuals are we are always thrilled when they exceed their own goals.
In 2016, our Boys’ School achieved fantastic GCSE results, with 90% achieving an A or A* in their maths GCSE. Over the past two years, a superb two thirds of all GCSE results have been graded at A or A*, or 9 – 7 level. We are also proud that over 20% of all of the new style 9-1 GCSE papers sat by the boys in 2018 achieved the highest grade 9 result, more than four times the national average.
Our Diamond Structure contributes greatly to the academic success at GCSE level, boys and girls learn differently and at different rates and at Dame Allan’s Schools we are able to cater for this.
