Hi
If there’s anybody on here who has a son starting in Dartford this year please send me a PM as we don’t know anyone else that has got a place yet!
The introduction evening isn’t until July so thought it would be good to do something myself.
Thanks

Can you please explain what you mean by not got a place yet ? I am also new to this( we are IC) but I was of the understanding that once it was a first preference and it was offered and you accepted the offer, that was confirmation of everything ?

I mean that I don’t know any other boys who have got a place personally

If I recall correctly, the induction day is in July, but only the children are invited. They go the whole day.
Do they now have an information evening for the parents?

I have no idea
I thought parents would also be invited to an evening meeting

Has your son got a place for this September Salsa?

Though not directed at me, we dropped off his acceptance form today.

Hi Muststopstressing,

No, I have two sons at DGS, year 9 and 12. So, it was a while ago. We only went to an ice breaker that the parents association organises around October.

During induction day, some six formers stand at the doors and take the children away. You are not even allowed to go in. Sometimes much to the boy's relief! I took my eldest to the door, and my youngest said that I wasn't allowed. He was a big boy and wasn't going to be taken to the school gates!

Actually no. I remember now. Yes, we had to go back in the evening. It was lovely as they took pictures of the children during the day.
