After our under 14s netball ball team won their round at the Kent Netball tournament in Rainham, they were in the Kent finals on Saturday 24 November in Aylesford.
After some very tough competition they came 8th out of all Kent Schools. All girls played exceptionally well and the Dane Court community are so proud of their accomplishment, commitment and team work.
2018 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 presents some of the many 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.
During the summer holidays 19 Dane Court students took part in the National Citizenship Service. This fantastic and engaging programme took students away for a week of team building activities and on their return to Thanet they ran social action projects to promote Help for Heroes, Breast Cancer Awareness and Oasis Domestic Abuse Service. During their celebratory event at Dreamland on the 14 September the teams won awards for creativity, innovation and determination.
New school year and uniform reminder

The start of the new school year for all students is 8:40am on Wednesday 5 September 2018.
Important documents are available in our Summer Mailing section. There will be a few more items added in August and September (Homework Timetables, for example) so please check back later.
Students in years seven to 11 should wear standard uniform when they return to school.
This week is Freshers' week at universities across the UK. Dane Court would like to wish all our students who graduated from the IB this summer well in their new endeavours.
This year students are leaving us to study at University of Cambridge, Durham University, Imperial College London, University of Kent, London School of Economics and Political Science and University of Warwick to name but a few.
As well as university pathways students will be embarking on apprenticeships at Kreston Reeves, Boeing, St Mildred’s Primary School and here at Dane Court Grammar School.
The last two years studying the IB at Dane Court has been a significant journey for everyone and will set the students up well to manage the studies and responsibilities required of them.
The Dane Court Grammar School Parents Association's monthly boot fairs usually take place at the school from 6:30am on the second Saturday of each month with breaks over winter and during the summer holiday. Read more...
