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.

High School Musical on Stage!

hsm 250pxIn July 2014 students and staff from across the school joined forces to present High School Musical on Stage!
Created by Disney and based on their own 2006 TV movie; "High School Musical", the theatrical format retains the energy and strong story line (described by the author as a modern adaptation of Romeo and Juliet) of the film version.

International Baccalaureate results 2014

P1020630 250pxDane Court Grammar School is absolutely delighted with their International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma results, received this week. 92% of students passed the Diploma and, across the whole year group, the average point score was 33 – equating to the equivalent of 3 A level A* grades each.
Annie Hale, Head of Sixth Form, said "This was our first IB cohort with the whole year group studying either the IB Diploma or the IB Careers-related Certificate. They have performed quite brilliantly. The IB is the best educational offer in the world and is far more coherent and worthwhile than simply taking three A levels. The IB is also regarded by many as being more challenging than A levels – and our superb results prove that Thanet students not only have the sticking power, but also the talent, to compete against the rest of the world and come out on top."

Teams of students work on a research style project then create presentations of their work culminating in a Science Fair at the end of the week.
