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.

School Lottery June 2020

Thanks to your fantastic support of our lottery we are now receiving a regular monthly fundraising payment and building up a fund which will support our students in the next academic year. This half term ‘Your School Lottery’ are also giving away £150 JD Sports gift cards to 3 lucky winners as well as the normal weekly cash prize and the chance to win the £25,000 jackpot. ‘Your School Lottery’ knows that times are tough for families right now and want to provide prizes that ...really help them.

But you know what they say, ‘you’ve got to be in it to win it’, so now is your chance to buy a ticket or two and help us keep the fundraising going week in, week out. It doesn’t have to be restricted to parents, carers and staff either; friends and family can also log on to the Your School Lottery homepage, buy a ticket and help Dawlish College students. We are currently on target to raise more than £1500 for this fund in the next 12 months – wouldn’t it be amazing if we could increase that to £2500 or more?
