Dane Court Grammar School is a mixed selective secondary school, set on a spacious site in Broadstairs in the heart of Thanet. The school is a friendly and inspiring place in which our students learn and thrive.
Learning at Dane Court is an enjoyable and exciting experience. Students are encouraged to develop the skills to learn independently, to lead and work in groups and to research and present information effectively. Our modern classrooms, laboratories, workshops and creative spaces are stimulating places in which to learn.
We continue to work hard to improve teaching and learning and to provide a high quality education for our students. We are proud of our students’ examination achievements this year on the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme and Career-related Programme and at GCSE, including all the new 9-1 qualifications.
Dane Court has a busy extra-curricular life, providing wonderful opportunities for students to extend their learning and social experiences. Students have the chance to participate in a full range of activities and the school has an excellent reputation for success at local, county and national level in a wide range of sports.
We offer a wealth of exciting opportunities for our students and would like to invite all pupils who have taken the Kent Test this year to visit the school on Wednesday 17 October.
As always, our open day schedule will include morning, afternoon and evening tours along with opportunities to hear about the school from our current students and senior staff team.
Details of exact times and which tour is allocated your child's primary school will be published shortly so please ckeck back later.

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.
