The wait for sixth form results is over at Dane Court Grammar School, where students study the International Baccalaureate.
We are very pleased and proud to tell you that the students who attended The Great Big Dance Off National Finals have achieved third place!
To mark our school's sixtieth year, we threw a big party on Saturday 1 July 2017
Today Dane Court celebrated Year 11 Red Carpet Day.
We were lucky to have fabulous weather for the students' parade, although the students may well have appreciated some air conditioning!
All agreed that they 'scrubbed up well' in sharp suits and beautiful dresses and the traditional procession up the red carpet was supported by many parents and friends, as well as the other students during break time.
The leavers' assembly was a real celebration of five years of friendship and shared experiences. Students from all the houses enjoyed presentations, speeches (and poems!) from their mentors past and present, and there were appearances of all the students in their Year 7 incarnations, courtesy of our photo archives. The event was a real testimony to their camaraderie and support for each other and also to the genuine fondness that their mentors felt for them. And this year they had organised a yearbook that was distributed after the assembly - well done to Evan for organising this first!
They have been a terrific Year 11, a yeargroup with huge promise and character, and we look forward to welcoming them into our Sixth Form in September. In the meantime, a long and well-deserved summer holiday awaits!
The Spanish exchange was a seven day trip to a town on the outskirts of Madrid called Las Rozas. Fortunately for us, the weather was lovely and the sun set quite late so the days there were longer, meaning we had lots of time to do things that tourists do best! The host families were amazing and we all would do the trip again if given the chance.
The Dane Court Jazz Band will be performing at this event.

The people have spoken – at Dane Court Grammar School, at least. Students stood as candidates for election in each of the school’s six houses. A week of hustings at lunchtime was followed by the vote, which gave a resounding victory for Labour.
