The College was founded in 1871 by local businessmen as a school principally for the local children. It 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 25 other such schools in the first edition of the Public Schools’ Yearbook published in 1889. The 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 but also for a significant minority of pupils from overseas.
Dover College is very much a family school, catering for pupils from ages 3 to 18. We have a reputation for outstanding pastoral care and as a result pupils are remarkably tolerant and understanding of one another.
Our curriculum, which is currently undergoing a root-and-branch review as part of the College’s development plan, Project 150, is creative, well planned, wide ranging and enriching. The College gains outstanding results at A Level and BTEC with excellent value-added results at GCSE.
The successful candidate will be expected to make a contribution to current activities and initiatives, as well as developing new ones.
