Information about the school – Dartford Grammar School for Girls

Dartford Grammar School for Girls is an academically selective school with a large sixth form. Students attend from several south London boroughs as well as Dartford and the surrounding rural areas. The majority of students are White British with one third from minority ethnic groups, the largest of which are Black African, Asian and Indian and those from Other White backgrounds. The proportion of students speaking English as an additional language is close to the national average although very few are at the early stages of learning English. The proportion of students with special educational needs and/or disabilities is lower than that found nationally. The school has specialist status in science, mathematics and information communication technology (ICT). It achieved National Healthy Schools Status in 2010. The current headteacher was appointed in September 2011, having been head of school for two years, during which time the substantive headteacher worked as an Executive Headteacher of this school and another school in the local authority for one year.
