Head's Welcome

Head of College Welcome

Welcome to Dawlish College.

It continues to be an absolute privilege to be the Headteacher at Dawlish College – the staff and students are second to none and take all of life’s challenges in their stride. Despite current uncertainties as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, we continue to hold onto our core purpose in all that we do. Behind all of the decisions taken and measures put in place sits the balance between keeping staff and students safe whilst also providing them with a varied and exciting school experience.

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.

GCSE Art Collection

Collection of GCSE Art Work

If your son/daughter has not already done so and now wishes to collect their GCSE Art work (June 2020) can they please do so as soon as possible before 4th December 2020.

Due to teaching commitments and Covid protocols it will not be possible to retrieve art work unless prior arrangements are made for collection. Please contact the Art Department to give notice of your intention to collect any work in order for us to have it ready for your arrival at Main Reception; elithgow@dawlish.devon.sch.uk / eparr@dawlish.devon.sch.uk

Please also note it is not possible for your son/daughter to attempt to retrieve the art work from the classroom themselves, as lessons will be taking place.

It will be presumed that any remaining work after the above date and going into January 2021 is not required and will, therefore, be disposed of, or recycled by the Art Department.

Yours faithfully

Mrs L Lithgow
Mrs E Parr
Art Department
