to theRoyal Docks Community SchoolRead Full Welcome
Welcome to the Royal Docks Community School, we are a fast improving mixed community comprehensive school for students aged 11 to 16. Our school is organised into 6 forms and has the advantage of being a small school so that every student is known by their head of year. Our non-teaching head of year 7 makes sure that all students settle in well and he gets to know all the families of year 7. Our students here are keen to learn and have enormous potential to succeed. We have very high expectations of all our students and we have established a strong learning environment in which all students are expected to achieve beyond their potential.
I am retiring in December after 17 years working in Newham including 5 years as Head Teacher of The Royal Docks Community School. The school has made rapid improvements and I would like to thank you for your support over the past 5 years. I invite you to ‘say goodbye’ on Wednesday 18th December from 5pm prior to the Christmas Concert. I look forward to seeing you, Ruth Martin, Head Teacher
Many thanks to all the parents and carers who braved the weather and attended the Options Information Evening last night. We hope you found it useful. If you were unable to attend, please contact the school to arrange a time to come in and meet with the Year 9 Team, who will be able to answer your questions - Ms Tinsley, Head of Year 9
The Royal Docks Community School – Bucking the Trend
As students across the country return to school this week, pupils at The Royal Docks Community School will be very pleased to hear the news that their school’s results are the most improved in Newham. Results have been rising for three years and this year, despite falling grades nationally, The Royal Docks School boasts another 7% increase.
With 49% of students achieving 5 A*-C grades including English and Maths, significant improvements in teaching and learning along with high expectations for achievement and behaviour, have clearly begun to impact on progress.
The number of students receiving A and A* grades is also to be congratulated, particularly when nationally, this number has fallen significantly. Between the twenty highest achieving pupils, 42 grade A*’s and 71 grade A’s have been obtained. The highest results were achieved by Celena Davis with 11 A*’s and 1 A grade. An incredible achievement.
"These results show that Royal Docks school, the most improved in Newham, is on its way to becoming a centre of excellence where students study in a friendly atmosphere where good behaviour is the norm. I am proud of the progress we have made but staff will be setting even higher standards for themselves and our students this year."
Tim Harrison (Chair of Governors)
