Everybody has made such an effort in making us feel welcome at Dover College. It has been amazing to see such a transformation in our son this year compared with previous years in his old school, and our daughter never stops surprising us with what she has learnt. We are so pleased with the progress they have made this year and in our opinion it is worth every penny.

Mr & Mrs Collinson – Daughter in Prep 2 & Son in Prep 6

From his first taster day, to these last days in Junior School, he has been welcomed, loved and supported. This was first displayed by every staff member we met (from the head teacher right through to the canteen and cleaning staff); but quickly we realised it flowed right down through the children, and even the other parents we met. It’s quite hard to pin-point actually, only to say Dover College to us, is a very special school.

There is so much here for you academically. If you like to do something creative, Textiles, Art and Design Technology lessons are perfect for you. Science at Dover College is also fantastic with so many interesting activities. Here you learn everything about Biology, Chemistry and Physics after school you can choose between many sports, for example Hockey, Horse Riding, Swimming … . Every Saturday there is something special for example ice skating, trip to London or laser tag, it is so amazing.
