Welcome to the Sixth Form
A very warm welcome to Dartford Grammar School for Girls’ Sixth Form. We recognise that making the right choice about your post-16 education is vitally important; we are very proud of our Sixth Form students and hope that this prospectus gives you a flavour of the opportunities and experiences you would have here with us.
"A large majority of pupils stay on into Years 12 and 13 and achieve extremely well at A level. Others join the sixth form from elsewhere and achieve equally well." Ofsted, June 2016
Dartford Grammar School for Girls is a forward looking, innovative and creative community with the traditions, values and high expectations of an exceptional grammar school. Our vision for all members of our school community is “Working together to achieve academic excellence and personal potential”. We have very high standards in all areas of school life and expect our students to strive for their own personal excellence in everything they do. As a community, our principal values are Respect, Responsibility, Excellence, Dedication and Creativity. It is important that, together, we share the same high expectations and ambitious aspirations whilst at the same time we recognise and celebrate our differences as individuals.
We believe that our personal Sixth Form would offer you a truly excellent environment in which to achieve your individual potential in this next exciting stage of your life. We look forward to discussing your plans for the future with you.
It gives me great pleasure to outline the opportunities Dartford Grammar School for Girls’ Sixth Form can offer you. I am extremely proud of our Sixth Form, its outstanding academic record, vibrant ethos, caring approach and dedicated students. All this combined, make it a great place to work and learn.
Alongside a curriculum of challenge and rigour, you will have the opportunity to work with other students and teachers on a variety of projects developing leadership skills, join a range of societies and take time out with friends in our purpose built Sixth Form cafe area.
The achievements of our past and current students are really something to behold and we are extremely proud of the accomplishments of everyone. At the end of Sixth Form, most of our students go on to university to study a range of degree courses, including medicine, at institutions including Oxbridge and the highly repected Russell Group universities. Some students successfully gain places on prestigious and competitive apprenticeships courses.
Our Sixth Form is a remarkable environment in which to nurture and develop your potential and skills for your future aspirations. We look forward to meeting you soon.
