Dartford Excelsior Academy is truly an international school. This is reflected in our curriculum, which demonstrates a deep commitment to internationalism.
We aim to nurture young people that are global citizens, with a deep understanding and appreciation of themselves, the world around them, and the peoples within it.
Promoting Excellency and a Global Mindset
We take seriously our responsibility to prepare our young people, not just for exams, but for their life and success afterwards. Based on the British system, our ambitious and selective syllabi elevates the curriculum to embrace a commitment to excellence, the fostering of independent thought, and the development of academic resilience.
Whether it’s in our literature choices, our approach to the study of physical and human geographies, or the historical narratives our students explore, our curriculum champions the global nature of knowledge, allowing young people to explore cultures and ideas beyond their own.
Our deep commitment to excellence can also be seen in our approach to the teaching of mathematical and natural sciences. Designed to develop students’ curiosity in the world, we students in their mastery of mathematical storytelling and their deployment of the scientific method.
Technology as a tool for excellence
Our unique position as a fully online institution gives us the ability to think more widely about the curriculum, affording us the opportunity to design and utilise resources in ways that are beyond the capability of brick and mortar schools.
Our championing of the plethora of opportunities afforded by the digital age shows that our commitment to technology is not an afterthought but an integral part of how we conceptualise and deliver our courses.
