Head's Welcome

Head of College Welcome

Welcome to Dawlish College.

It is an absolute privilege to have been invited to take on the role of Head Of College at Dawlish College; especially at such a positive time as it flourishes within the Formal Management Partnership with Newton Abbot College. Our GCSE results this year have been excellent with students out-performing the national average in many subjects and English and maths passes being the highest in the area.

Dawlish College is a vibrant and exciting place to be, where we have the highest expectations of staff and students alike and seek to provide challenge at every available opportunity. As a small school, we have a very proud record of holistic support, care and individual attention: the happiness and well-being of our students is of paramount importance and is a vital foundation for their growth and development. Our college has an atmosphere of creativity and positivity that is generated by the provision of excellent opportunities for every individual thereby maximising the outcomes and improving the life chances of the young people in our care.

As a parent myself, I understand that you want your child to be inspired, supported and challenged to be the best version of themselves within an environment that knows them and values them as an individual. Thank you for entrusting me with the care and education of your child, present or future, and I look forward to unlocking their ambitions as I get to know them and work closely with you.

Art Exhibition 2020

At Dawlish College we usually celebrate the year's GCSE Art achievements by selecting nominees for our Dawlish Art Award from our 6 GCSE art groups. We choose from outcomes produced in our 3 annual art exams and then as a college community we vote for our favourite pieces in college and online with the top 3 outcomes winning prizes and the top spot awarded the 'D'Art Award'.

This year, this isn't possible as the exams haven't taken place, but we thought it would be great to hold a virtual exhibition of work students are proud as our means of celebration.

For this to happen we asked our wonderful GCSE art students to be brave and send a photo of their favourite piece of work produced in this academic year. Click on the link below to see the gallery of work received this year. Well done everyone for the fantastic range of talents on display!
