Poole MP Robert Syms paid a visit to Carter Community School last week to congratulate Principal Sam Davidson and team on this year’s GCSE results.
The summer was a successful one for the Hamworthy based school, which in the last two years has seen a 20% increase in the number of those achieving 5 or more GCSEs at grades A*-C, including English and maths.
As well as meeting staff and students during his visit to the Blandford Close site on Friday (11th November), Mr Syms was given a brief tour of the enhanced facilities which include a new dance studio, general improvements to the building and classrooms and refurbished dining room, assembly hall and gym.
Commenting on his visit, Mr Syms said:
"Talking with Carter Community School’s Principal Sam Davidson, I was very impressed with the success she and the school staff have achieved in providing an excellent educational environment for the students, who show every sign of flourishing in their care. I am confident this progress will continue and wish all the staff and students the very best for the future."
Ms Davidson added:
“We were delighted to welcome Mr Syms to the school and share with him the fantastic progress being made here at Carter Community School, where the focus is very much on the personal wellbeing of each and every student as we work with them to help them achieve their full potential in a safe, caring and exciting environment.”
