Welcome to Dartford Grammar School
Dartford Grammar School was founded in 1576 and is one of the oldest schools in England. The school exists for learning and to prepare young people in the best possible way for future success by providing an unprecedented range of exciting and challenging opportunities. Our reputation for educational excellence is recognised nationally and internationally.
A report published in 2011 by Her Majesty’s Inspectorate recognised that the school is outstandingly successful in all aspects as a ‘learning community developing global citizens’.
All schools should be judged on the qualities of the students when they leave and on the progress that they have made. Dartford Grammar School students are confident communicators and energetic global citizens with a passion for learning and a commitment to service and the community. They enjoy doing well, are not boastful and they value the talents, ideas and successes of others.
You will find that Dartford Grammar School students take pride in their performance and in their school. They enjoy learning and are ready to leave at the end of their time with us, thoughtful, articulate and fully prepared to participate in an increasingly complex future.
