Dartford Adult Education Centre


Originally opened on 16 March 1931 as a local school for boys, the Dartford Adult Education Centre has seen many changes in education through the years.

After being renovated specifically to accommodate Kent Adult Education, the centre boasts a large state-of-the-art dance studio, complementary therapy suite and craft room. The centre also has an IT suite, art studio and comfortable, clean classrooms for our many subjects.
