Hartsdown Technology College (also HTC) is a secondary school with academy status in Margate in southeast England, which teaches years 7-14 (UK school years; age range 11–19 years). It has 1,000 students and 150+ staff.

The school holds the Arts Council of England, 'Arts Mark' and is a holder of the Investors in People standard.

Performance

The school has consistently exceeded expectations for examinations results for its intake range of students. When the DfE (then DCSF) in 2008 established a minimum threshold of 30% of students attaining 5+ GCSEs including English and Maths for all schools, to be achieved by 2011, Hartsdown immediately surpassed the standard with 32% of students reaching this level in 2009, followed by 43% in 2010.[1]
