Dover College is a co-educational school for pupils aged 3-18. We are located in a beautiful historic site with easy access to Central London, the major airports and Eurostar terminals. We see ourselves as a family and offer a warm welcome as well as exceptional pastoral care. This environment encourages high academic achievement, builds confidence and prepares pupils for adult life. Our class size is maximum 15 pupils and with a school size of under 400 pupils, nobody is left out and everybody is supported.

We are international and local. We welcome pupils from across the globe, which encourages everyone to be inclusive, unprejudiced and outward-looking. Our busy co-curriculum is a big part of college life. From canoeing to horse-riding; theatre trips to fundraising for charity; participating in our busy co-curricular activities enables pupils to acquire the leadership skills and personal qualities necessary to allow them to face the future with confidence.
