Description of the school

Dane Court is a selective grammar school with a sixth form that is part of the Thanet Sixth Form Consortium. The school has specialist status for languages. It draws most of its students from a large number of primary schools from across the Isle of Thanet, which is an area of social and economic deprivation, and most students are from White British backgrounds. The proportion of students entitled to free school meals is below the national average. The percentage of students speaking English as an additional language is below average, as is the proportion of students who have learning difficulties or disabilities. The school has been designated by the local authority as a special educational needs resource base for two students who have visual impairment.
