A Friday Message from Mr Bellamy...
Dear Parents and Carers,
This has been a busy week at South Dartmoor with Year 8 Parent Teacher consultations taking place on Thursday and the deconstruction of the ‘tented area’ beginning. We are expecting the work to construct foundations for the new dining hall to begin on February 22nd. We have also seen the publication in the local press of the exam results for Devon, which you can view HERE.
It is pleasing to see that South Dartmoor has the highest performing non-selective sixth form in Devon and significantly out performs Exeter College. Our Key Stage 4 results also stand up well to comparison and we see attainment higher than schools such as Newton Abbot College, amongst others, at both Key Stages. Whilst our relative performance is pleasing we will be working tirelessly to improve standards further.
In order to support our ongoing drive for improvement Paul Collins (Deputy Principal) has been promoted to the post of Head of School and will be playing a higher profile role in the day to day running of the College. I will still be heavily involved at the College but will have additional capacity to focus upon student achievement and fulfilling the wider cross-academy Executive Principal responsibilities.
