​Another fantastic set of results for Dinnington Comprehensive School! Our Year 11 students achieved the best results in the school's history, building on last year's significant improvement. 64% of Students achieved 5+ A*- C (including English & Maths) above the national average. 

Students in English performed outstandingly with 84% gaining an A*-C, this is especially impressive in a year when English results nationally fell.

Performance in Maths and English was again above national average with 73% achieving A*-C.

With Ofsted in April 2014 confirming that Dinnington is a 'good' school, these results put us firmly on the path to be graded 'outstanding' at the next inspection.

National Day of Action – Thursday 10th July 2014

You will be aware from the national news that the NUT (teachers' union) and the public service unions, GMB, UNISON and UNITE have all voted in favour of a national strike day next week on Thursday 10th July 2014.  This action is not against the school itself, but is part of a national strategy by these unions to draw attention to their dispute with the government with regards to pay and conditions, pensions and public services.  A significant number of staff will be taking action and although it will cause disruption to the day and a change to the planned curriculum, it is still possible for the school to remain open for students who have just moved up to Years 7, 8, 9 and 13.  However students in Years 10 and 11 will need to remain at home.    

This will allow us to ensure the safety of those students in school.  The catering service is not affected and so the normal arrangements at lunch time will operate, ie students can bring a packed lunch or buy food from the House Bases.  Obviously, if the dispute is resolved before Thursday and the strike called off, the school will open for all year groups as normal.  

Thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding in this manner, we are acutely aware of the difficulties this causes you.
