Dartford Grammar School

Dartford Grammar School was founded in 1576 and is one of the oldest schools in England. For nearly 450 years, Dartford Grammar School has enabled young people from Dartford and its surrounding area to achieve great things. It is proud of the confident, thoughtful, energetic global citizens that leave the school, fully prepared to contribute to the community, and to rise to the challenges of an increasingly complex future in the wider world.
Dartford Grammar School’s students are extremely successful. They enjoy doing remarkably well – both at their academic work and in the team work associated with the widest range of co-curricular activities. They value the talents, ideas and successes of others.
Dartford Grammar work closely with Kent and Medway training who provided salaried and non-salaried SCITT.
