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.

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.
