Dover College is an independent co-educational day and boarding school for children aged 3 to 18 years of age in Kent.
“Our philosophy can be summarised by five important points:
Small is beautiful: The values of the family run through Dover College. Our class sizes allow us to nurture confidence, encourage inquisitiveness and celebrate individual achievement.
We are academically ambitious: We take the time to really get to know each child so that the right balance of challenge and support is in place based on their needs. This is a school which recognises that success is as unique as the individual and celebrates achievement where it represents the personal best for the child.
We think differently: Our distinctive curriculum, connecting Early Years right through to Sixth Form, focusses not only on achieving excellent results but also developing inquisitive and creative minds ready for the challenges ahead. We are a member of the Round Square organisation, a group of 150 worldwide schools, and share their commitment to an all-round education. We prize their core values of internationalism, democracy, care for the environment, adventure, leadership and service. We encourage all pupils to participate in sport, music and drama, recognising the way these areas promote leadership, teamwork and self-belief.
We are international and local: We welcome pupils from across Europe, Africa, Asia and the Americas, encouraging everyone to be inclusive, unprejudiced, cosmopolitan and outward looking.
We prepare students for life after Dover College, and have a strong Alumni and Old Dovorian network. Our university and careers advice is exceptional and we have close links with higher education establishments around the world.”
