A Great Place To Work

Dover College is a great place to work. Pupils are well mannered, the staff is friendly and the surroundings are beautiful.

A recent independent report commissioned by the College concluded:

“Dover College is rare in terms of the extent to which it fulfils its promise of being a friendly, caring and welcoming school, offering a child-focused, all-round education which nurtures the potential, whatever that might be, in every child. Many independent schools lay claim to these strengths but, in our experience, few deliver to the extent that Dover College does. We found extremely high endorsements by parents and pupils for all aspects of academic, sporting, creative and pastoral activities. Uniquely, there is also a strong sense of team with both academic and non-academic staff working together for the benefit of each child.”
