DSTC is an 11-18 Foundation Co-operative Trust, girls’ non-selective school with 880 students on roll and a successful mixed sixth form. Skilful and careful leadership over a number of years has placed our school in an enviable position. We are oversubscribed and our students come to us with a range of backgrounds and abilities, including some who have passed the selection tests. The last two OFSTEDs have been “Good”. Inspectors noted in March 2022 “Dartford Science & Technology College is a welcoming and friendly school. There is a strong sense of community, based on excellent relationships between staff, pupils and parents. The school is a safe space for pupils to learn and develop as young citizens. One parent summed this up by describing it as ‘secure, supportive and encouraging.” Progress 8 is positive and the highest for a non-selective school in Dartford and North Kent, Post-16 results are good. The buildings are first class and the budget is secure. We are fully staffed with specialist teachers, behaviour and uniform are very good. Careers is a further strength at DSTC and Gatsby benchmarks are currently way beyond national averages at 90%.
