Why work at Dartford Science and Technology College?
DSTC is a small, non-selective secondary school for girls in Dartford. We are family-centred with high aspirations and pride ourselves on excellent pastoral care. There is a strong sense of community, based on excellent relationships between staff, pupils and parents. In March 2022 Ofsted said that DSTC continues to be a good school following on from the 2017 Ofsted inspection when the school was rated Good in each category and Good overall.
"The school is a safe space for pupils to learn and develop as young citizens. The school has high expectations of pupils' behaviour, with strong systems to manage it. As a result, pupils behave very well. 100% of staff feel proud to work at DTSC and 85% of parents who responded to Parent View would recommend DSTC to other parents" (Ofsted March 2022).
Lessons at DSTC have a calm and purposeful atmosphere with the students showing a genuine interest in learning. Our teachers tell us they enjoy being able to teach and enable the students to learn without disruption.
We are a Co-operative Trust school and are committed to supporting our workforce to be the best they can be. We can offer accelerated professional development with a personalised approach to developing all staff through coaching, mentoring and both internal and external training. Our new staff will have unparalleled opportunities to learn and bring excellent practice to bear in raising achievement for the students of DSTC.
