Headmaster’s Introduction

Because confidence matters

New Headmaster for Dover College Gareth Doodes and familyI am delighted to welcome you to Dover College, a co-educational boarding and day school for pupils aged 3 – 18 on the scenic Kent coast only an hour by train from London.

We believe wholeheartedly in developing confidence in young men and women giving them opportunities which they perhaps would have never experienced and encouraging them to exceed their own expectations.  We’re proud of being a family school where pupils are known individually. Our community spirit is central to this; we have a large number of families who live on site and their warmth of welcome and inclusivity encourages a home from home for boarders and day pupils alike. 

Our Junior School is a beacon of excellence and has a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The highly trained and motivated staff are focussed on the needs of the individual child. The Senior School is staffed by superb teachers who consistently deliver excellent results in the classroom, placing an emphasis on academic rigour alongside developing a love of learning. On top of this, our wide and varied activities programme is designed to encourage teamwork, develop stamina and provide a healthy body alongside an inquiring mind.

Dover College is proudly international, representing a slice of our inter-connected and diverse society. Day pupils live alongside boarders in our houses and benefit from the opportunities and facilities of a 24/7 boarding environment.

If you are looking for a school where pupils’ confidence is developed in equal measure both inside and outside the classroom then come and see us. I would be delighted to meet you to share the atmosphere of our wonderful school.

Gareth Doodes.
