Exhibition Careers Fair 2022

IMG 1815 420pxThursday 29 September 2022
ADM Computing, Canterbury Archaeological Trust, On Architecture, Border Force, right through to Pfizer and Vattenfall Energy were present at our Exhibition Careers Fair 2022. Dane Court students had the opportunity to gather information, speak to employers and try out exhibition pieces as part of our careers fair. After a four year gap, the variety of local, national and international businesses, organisations, and higher education training providers who attended our careers fair yesterday, was broad and enlightening. They were able to give students insight into a variety of industry careers and opportunities open to them, and the pathways that will take them there. Dane Court would like to thank all exhibitors for their valuable time and Education Business Partnership Kent for arranging the event.

HM Queen Elizabeth II

Dane Court Grammar School would like to express its deepest sympathies for the death of HM Queen Elizabeth II.

Our school will observe the national events of mourning, and continue to support our staff, students and families during this period. School hours will continue as normal, pending further announcements from government.
