Namibia 2014

Namibia14 250pxA group of 16 students joined Mr White and for the final time Mrs Opperman on a 16-day adventure into the heart of Namibia. Joined this year by Miss Hodgett, the students explored the stunning desert, finding the elusive desert elephant, not seen by the students on the two previous trips.
As the students sat on top of a windy sand dune at 5:00am you could see their hearts warming to this very special continent and what it has to offer. As always the run down after the hard climb was loved by all, with Martin and Sally making the most of the opportunity to tumble their way down over the soft sand. From there they moved north to the Skeleton Coast, via Mrs Opperman's family farm and a great meal of Springbok pie.

Prize Evening 2014

DSC 3082 LR CL 250pxDane Court Grammar School's annual Prize Evening at The Winter Gardens on Monday 15 September was an uplifting celebration of student achievement. Chair of Governors Dr Virginia Austin welcomed the Mayors of Broadstairs and Margate, parents, staff and students.

GCSE results 2014

P1020855 250pxDane Court Grammar School is celebrating another year of outstanding GCSE results: 96% of students gained at least five GCSE passes at grades A*-C.

Among our outstanding students, Sarah Jones scored 12 A* grades and one A, Amy Napier and Alice Rawson both gained ten A* grades and at least two further A grades; Suzanne Fletcher and Esme Votta both gained nine A* and four A grades. Top-scoring boys were James Howard with nine A* and five A grades; Matthew Hancox, Daniel Van Hinsbergh and Alex Payne each gained seven A* and six A grades.

Science results were especially impressive, with 85% of students gaining A* and A grades in Biology, Chemistry and Physics. These excellent results mean that the large majority of students have secured the grades they need to progress to high-achieving sixth-form International Baccalaureate courses at Dane Court.

Head of School Andrew Fowler said “these superb results reflect the hard work of the students and the wonderful support they have received from their teachers and parents.”
Sarah Snaydon, Assistant Head, said “I am delighted with the success of our Year 11 students. They have worked very hard for these excellent grades, with a very significant number gaining four levels of progress. A number of students have overcome great personal hardship, and I am very proud of their success.”
Chair of Governors Dr V Austin commented, “As always, Governors are intensely proud of the achievements of students and staff at Dane Court.”

Energize your future

The Lighthouse ChallengeA group of 35 year eight students spent last week working with Education Busines Partnership Kent and local employer Cummins Power Generation to explore how we make electricity and other forms of energy. The week started with a visit to school by James and Sudhar - two ambassadors from Cummins. They brought with them a range of models and kits for our pupils to use when exploring many ways of generating electricity. In the afternoon James and Sudhar introduced our students to the challenge for the rest of the week; to develop an innovative way to generate power for the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
