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.

Year 10 Pre-Public exams 2021

Please find below the year 10 Pre Public Examination (PPE) timetable. The year 10 PPEs will run from Friday 18th June until Monday 5th July 2021. The PPEs are an important method of assessment that can be used by teachers to make judgements on final GCSE grades should a student be unable to take their final examinations. It is therefore crucial that students revise thoroughly for these exams using the methods suggested by their subject teachers.

The exams will take place under full examination conditions during the college day. When students do not have an exam they will continue to follow their normal timetable. Further information regarding seating plans etc will be available to students closer to the exams.

Yours faithfully

Dan Osborne
Year 9 and 10 Progress Leader
