Description of the school

Dartford Grammar School is an oversubscribed school with a co-educational sixth form. Entry to the sixth form is dependent upon achievement of at least seven A* to B GCSE grades or equivalent. While the school does offer AS and A-level courses in the sixth form, the greater proportion of students follows the International Baccalaureate (IB) programme. The IB pathway through Years 7 to 11, known as the Middle Years Programme (MYP) is being established up through the main school, and has now reached Year 10. There is a specialist unit within the school to support students with visual impairment. The school has specialist status as a language college and is a mentor school in the Raising Achievement Transforming Learning (RATL) programme. It has been an International Language College since 1995. Key for inspection grades Grade 1 Outstanding Grade 2 Good Grade 3 Satisfactory Grade 4 Inadequate
