Thank you to the vast majority of parents who have heeded our request not to bring cars on to the school site to collect their children at the end of the day.
Unfortunately, several parents are still driving onto site and we would ask again, on health and safety grounds, that these parents refrain from doing so.

The annual Business of Enterprise Project was launched amid a frenzy of activity from the year ten students on Friday 18 January. This fantastic project is now in its tenth year and is not only good fun, very instructive but is a wonderful model for learning. The whole year group dressed in their finery (i.e. smart business wear), looked the part and through a series of workshops in the morning received excellent instruction in how to continue with and fulfill the project's aims.

Four of Dane Court's students have been offered a place to study at Cambridge in the autumn. As a World Class university the entry procedure is a demanding one and students are required to meet not only the highest of academic standards but then they are rigorously interviewed in their chosen subject by college academics. 'Sincerest congratulations' to these successful applicants has come from Executive head teacher Paul Luxmoore, who said: 'These brilliant students have won offers against increasingly strong competition both nationally and internationally across a broad spectrum of subjects. To have almost half of the applicants winning places at Cambridge is a wonderful reward not only for the talent and hard work of our students but it is also an endorsement of the expertise of our highly committed staff. This is continued evidence of the culture of rising aspirations in our school community and also in Thanet'.
