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.

Catering Team in Colour

Our catering team at Dawlish College have just received their new uniforms in our new college colours and we think they look fabulous. We thought it would be a good time to introduce them to all of our parents and carers.

The team work hard every day to provide a healthy and varied menu for our students. There are different foods on offer at each of the breaks and they cater for all tastes. Mrs Willoughby and Mrs Chetnik, who manage the service, are very happy to accommodate students’ individual needs. Please contact them if you have any special requests. The team plays a big part in college life and we are lucky to have such a caring group of staff who are so friendly and always look out for the students no matter how busy they are.
