    DAOS take part in EESKIA qualifier East of England Schools Skiing Race!

    Many thanks to Mrs Davighi for the following report:

    ‘We entered a senior boy’s team this year in the ESSKIA race held on Sunday 15th September at The Gosling Ski Centre, Welwyn Garden City.  The students skied really well, it was a very hot day and the slope ran slower than usual.  The boys came a close 6th and might qualify for the National qualifier finals next month in Norwich.

    Our fastest skiers on the day were Daniel Heymoz in Year 13 with a time of 11.43 seconds and Arthur Bucher coming second with a time of 11.73. Oscar Siddle’s personal best time on the day was 13.96 seconds & Elian Razavi’s personal best time on the day was 14.54 seconds. A huge congratulations to the boys as these are excellent fast times considering it was a very hot day, really well done!

    Dame Alice Owens’ total time was 1:15.23 with a gap: + 10.61.

    We were very grateful to parents and Mrs Wootton as well as Dr Mitchell who helped out on the day – without their help the competition couldn’t take place!’

    DAOS students celebrate GCSE success

    Congratulations go to our incredible Year 11 cohort who have achieved excellent results in their GCSEs!

    25% of all GCSE grades awarded were graded 9, with a further 25% graded 8 and 19% graded 7.  That means that an incredible 50% of grades achieved were 8 or 9 (equivalent to the old A* and above) with 69% graded 9-7 which is roughly equivalent to the old A*A grades.

    90% of all grades awarded were 9-5 with 96% graded 9-4.  92% of students achieved 5 or more standard passes including English and maths with an incredible 9 students achieving 10 or more grade 9s.

    I am sure that our students, parents and carers will join the school in thanking the staff for their dedication and support throughout these years.

    The school would like to thank all our parents and carers for the support they have given the school and our young people as well as to thank our students for being such an incredible group of young people to work with.

    DAOS students celebrate A level success – thank you!

    Students at Dame Alice Owen’s are celebrating another fantastic set of results with 61% of grades awarded at A* or A!

    44% of students achieved 3 or more A levels at A*A grade with 8 students achieving a staggering 5 A*As at this level.

    84% of exams were graded between A* – B.

    23 students now have confirmed places at Oxbridge and over 90% of students have achieved their university place.

    Our warmest congratulations go to our students who worked so hard to achieve these incredible grades.  Our thanks also go to the staff who supported our students academically and pastorally as they negotiated these increasingly difficult years.  We are equally grateful for the support our parents and carers have extended, not only towards their young people, but to the school as well.
