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.

Dawlish Against Plastic Art

Year 7 students are currently engaged in a project highlighting the issues of plastics as part of their Art curriculum. The challenge has been set by the Dawlish Against Plastics committee and students are working hard to meet the entry criteria in the most thought-provoking and exciting ways!

Students are using inspiration from research about the issues of plastics to create piece of Art. They are able to use any medium and are just beginning to explore their individual response to the challenge. The final pieces of work will then be judged by the competition committee with prizes offered for the best and most innovative response to the task.

We look forward to seeing the final pieces!
