Information about the school

The College was founded in 1871 by local businessmen as a school principally for the local children, but has since developed an international pupil base. Dover College was one of the first schools considered a “Public School” as evidenced by its inclusion amongst only twenty-five other such schools in the first edition of the Public Schools’ Yearbook published in 1889. Dover College maintains the original characteristics of its inception – a school which caters not only for a broad range (both academically and socially) of local pupils, keeping its fees affordable to achieve this, but also caters for a significant minority of pupils from overseas.

We are very much a family school, catering for pupils from age 3 to 18. Many of our pupils have siblings at the school, and in some cases, their parents were here too. Pupils and parents are very loyal and supportive of their school. We have a reputation for outstanding pastoral care and as a result, pupils are remarkably tolerant and understanding of one another.

Our new Connected Curriculum, has recently had a root-and-branch review as part of the College’s development plan, Project 150, is creative, well planned, wide ranging and enriching. Its balance and focus on individual development helps us to stimulate an enquiring mind, establishing key skills and a wealth of experience in our pupils that will be of great benefit to them for the future. The College gains outstanding results at A Level and BTEC with excellent value-added results at GCSE.

Candidates are encouraged to clearly celebrate their conventional, and unconventional interests on their application.
