Dover College is 150 years old in 2021 and has educated over five and a half thousand young men and women in that time. We occupy a beautiful campus in the heart of Dover, with buildings dating back to the 12th Century. But there is nothing ancient in our approach to education.

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.

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 offer an all-round education - We encourage internationalism, democracy, care for the environment, adventure, leadership and service.

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.
