Congratulations on gaining a place to join our school! We are looking forward to meeting you soon and telling you all about life at Dane Court.
We will be using this webpage to help you get to know the school. We will release a series of resources for both you and your carers to help you become more familiar with the school and covering a range of aspects of school life.
From this site, you will be able to access electronic copies of information letters that have been sent out and we will be posting resources that our Year 7s have created to support your transition.
Archived copies of all previous newsletters can be found here.
