"The religious studies curriculum, assemblies and weekly chapel for Prep and Senior pupils provide opportunity for spiritual and moral development and for pupils to reflect, sing and pray."


Chapel - The Heart of Our Community

The Christian faith has been at the heart of Dover College’s spiritual identity since the School was founded. In the 21st Century, multi-cultural Britain, we seek to remain true to those Christian foundations, whilst welcoming those from a variety of faith backgrounds (or none). Pupils are encouraged to be open-minded and think for themselves as they encounter the Christian faith in Chapel and on other informal occasions. The spiritual aim of the College is to nurture faith where it exists while arousing curiosity in all pupils towards their spiritual dimension.

The Senior School community worships in the Chapel every Thursday morning and the Prep School has its weekly service on a Friday.

We are lucky enough to be supported by the ministry team from nearby St Mary’s Church. Our Thursday services are led by either Reverend Catherine Tucker (Interim Team Rector) or Reverend Melissa Carter (Team Vicar).
