A British foundation, an international outlook.
Dartford Excelsior Academy is truly an international school. This is firmly reflected in our curriculum. Our deep commitment to internationalism means we aim to nurture young people that are truly global citizens, with a deep understanding and appreciation of themselves, the world around them, and the peoples within it.
Built upon a core British curriculum, our ambitious and selective syllabi push the curriculum beyond its borders, 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 we guide students through, our curriculum champions the global community, allowing young people to explore cultures and ideas beyond their own.
Our deep commitment to excellence is reflected across the board in the academic rigour that underpins our selection and structuring of topics in the mathematical and natural sciences. In this way, our curriculum builds our students’ instincts for curiosity to delve deeper into the topics they encounter.
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. We aim to champion the plethora of opportunities afforded by the digital age. Thus, our commitment to technology is not an afterthought but an integral part of how we conceptualise and deliver our courses.
As you can see, we take seriously our responsibility to prepare our young people, not just for exams, but for their life and success afterwards.
