Pastoral Care & Wellbeing

A happy and comfortable environment in which to grow and develop

At Dover College, the welfare of each of our pupils is at the heart of everything with settling into College life made easy with our excellent pastoral structure delivered through our strong and established house system, including a dedicated tutor team supporting the boarding team in each house.

With so many staff available, pupils always have someone to turn to for help and support. There is regular monitoring of pupils’ progress through our grading and report system and this alongside good communication with parents ensures that pupils feel supported on their academic journey through the school.

Medical Centre

Our dedicated Medical Centre occupies its own building on the College and is for the use of all pupils, both day and boarding. Within the Medical Centre, there is a consulting and treatment room and bedrooms for boys and girls who are admitted as in-patients.

The Medical Centre is open during school hours, staffed by a team of Registered Nurses with experience of dealing with a breadth of child-related illnesses. It is the aim of the Medical Centre staff to provide a friendly, efficient and professional service to all pupils who need the services of the centre.

All boarding pupils are registered with the local GP surgery and are escorted to appointments.
