Dartford Grammar School has a long history and as a consequence has a very large alumni group with much experience of the working world and life in general. We welcome you to this section of the website which is compiled with all our Dartfordians in mind.
We strongly believe that your involvement with the school does not end when you leave our Sixth Form: you are a Dartfordian for life, and although your contact with us may wax and wane as your personal and working lives take shape, we welcome you back at any time. Your stories are important to us and to the generations that follow you: on one level we invite you to update us with your life story to add to the ever-growing Dartfordian Lives compendium that Alison Holland maintains, on another we invite you to participate in our Careers Networking project where advice and mentoring is sought for our current students. To add to the former of these or participate in the second, simply email Alison.
2016 saw the launch of the DGS Vision initiative, the details of which will continually update on this page. We hope to engage our community in a number of ways in Vision - the School's Development plan - and we shall be contacting alumni from time to time to deliver news on progress. This is an exciting time for the school, consistently ranked among the very best in the country for examination results and recently awarded the prestigious status of Sunday Times School of the Year, as we strive to provide the very best of facilities and equip our leavers for their lives beyond school.
