IB at 50 - inspirational stories

IBat50 250px2018 marks 50 years since the International Baccalaureate community was founded.
In contrast Dane Court Grammar School has been an IB World School for a mere decade.
Nevertheless our students and teachers have benefited from the IB's high standards and innovation in the field of education.

The IB website is currently celebrating their 50 years of successes with the eye-opening IB Stories which celebrates the achievements of its alumni and dedication of those teaching the Diploma Programme and Career-related Programme.

Here at Dane Court we offer both the Diploma and Career-related Programmes with a wide range of subject choices and a variety of flexible course formats.

Find out more on our sixth form pages.

Voyage au Château de Warsy 2018

Picture1 250pxvendredi 29 juin
Aujourd’hui nous sommes allés en France. Nous avons visité un mémorial de guerre et une ville qui s’appelle Albert. Ici nous avons visité un musée de la Somme, et selon moi, c’était vraiment intéressant. Après ça, nous sommes arrivés au Château de Warsy. Nous avons mangé le dîner et puis nous avons joué un jeu qui s’appelle ‘Buddy’. Je pense que, et mes amis pensent que ce n’était pas très amusant! Après le jeu, mon amie et moi avons dormi mais mes autres amis ont joué jusqu’à vingt-deux heures moins le quart!
samedi 30 juin
Aujourd’hui, nous sommes allés à Amiens, une grande ville avec une cathédrale qui s’appelle Notre Dame d’Amiens. C’était extrêmement grand et intéressant donc c’était difficile de partir! Après ça, nous sommes retournés à Warsy, où nous avons mangé le déjeuner. Après le déjeuner, nous avons joué aux sports nautiques. Par exemple, nous avons fait du canoë-kayak et c’était très ludique!
dimanche premier juillet
Aujourd’hui nous sommes allés à Paris! Nous sommes partis très tôt, mais quand nous sommes arrivés, nous sommes montés la Tour de Montparnasse où nous avons vu beaucoup de Paris. Après ça, nous avons visité la Tour Eiffel et il faisait très chaud! Plus tard, nous sommes partis prendre un bateau mouche sur la Seine. Nous avons vu Notre Dame de Paris et c’était chouette! Puis nous sommes retournés à Warsy où nous avons joué au volley-ball!
lundi 2 juillet
Aujourd’hui nous sommes rentrés en Angleterre. Avant de rentrer, nous avons visité une ville au bord de la mer qui s’appelle Le Touquet et c’était très amusant! Nous avons mangé des crêpes. Puis nous avons visité un hypermarché où nous avons acheté beaucoup de bonbons! Finalement nous sommes arrivés à Calais et nous sommes rentrés à l’école à vingt heures.
C’était des vacances géniales!

Sports day 2018

IMG 7419 250pxWe are very proud of our sports days.
We don't just see outstanding effort and physical performances - every year, students across the school take part in a day of friendly but fierce competition. Every member of staff is involved under the organisational guidance of our brilliant PE department and with the help of the sixth form house captains.

Visitors on the day often comment on the quiet efficiency and truly supportive atmosphere our community creates for this annual event.

Sports day is the biggest single competition on the inter-house calendar. The results of all events (track, field, pentathlon and ball games) are summarised below.
