I am delighted to introduce you to The Areté Trust. We are a new multi-academy trust, established on 1st June 2017. Currently there is one school in the Trust, Dartford Grammar School for Girls. DGGS is the most heavily oversubscribed girls’ grammar school in Kent, and was designated as Outstanding in all areas by Ofsted in June 2016 and then again in October 2021. We believe that Dartford Grammar School for Girls is a truly remarkable school and we are very proud of our students and their achievements. We are now very excited about the opportunity to welcome other schools into our Trust. If you would like further information about The Areté Trust, please do not hesitate to contact us.
