Dartford Grammar School for Girls


Hire Our Facilities

Dartford Grammar School for Girls has a range of facilities that are available for hire at various times during the year for either a one off event or on a regular basis.

We are delighted to have long standing relationships with various associations, swim schools, sports clubs and dance clubs as well as local primary and secondary schools.


During term time, the school is a busy place, educating over a thousand students. Most facilities are therefore only available to hire during the evening on weekdays from 5pm until 10pm, or during the school holidays.  Facilities are also available for hire at weekends from 9am until 6pm. 

Please note that we do not hire out facilities for celebrations or parties.


Car parking is limited during term time but there are spaces available in various areas within the school car park and grounds during the school holidays.  There are disabled parking bays available at all times.

Health and Safety

We follow HSE regulations and guidance and operate a strict health and safety policy to ensure that the school, hirer and users of our facilities are safe at all times.  Please note that DBS checks are required should you wish to undertake a hire during the school day.  Permission is normally only granted to other local schools for lettings during the school day, however please note that risk assessments and current DBS checks are still required.
