Open Days

Dover College hosts regular Open Days giving prospective parents the ideal opportunity to experience the opportunities the College has to offer. We keep our Open Days small to enable visitors the opportunity to talk to members of staff and pupils. Open Days must be booked in advance.

Whole School Open Days

Held once a term, the morning begins with a short presentation from the Headmaster followed by a talk from the Head Boy or Head Girl. Tailored tours are then conducted with pupils from both the Prep and Senior schools dependent upon the age of your child.

You’ll visit academic departments with the opportunity to meet staff, visit a boarding house and experience a handful of the activities and facilities the College has to offer.

Following the tour, lunch will be served in the College Refectory where you’ll be able to meet with Heads of Department over a delicious buffet.

Whole School Open Days are open to all years of entry from age 3.

Dates for our next Open Days

Due to the current unprecedented times we are unable to host our tradition Open Day on Saturday 16th May 2020 however, we are delighted to be hosting both a Prep School and a Senior School Virtual Open Morning in its place. Further details can be found here:
