Head PhotoDover College is a co-educational school for pupils aged 3 - 18. We are located in a beautiful, historic site with easy access to Central London, the major airports and Eurostar terminals.

We see ourselves as a family and offer a warm welcome as well as exceptional pastoral care. This environment encourages high academic achievement, builds confidence and prepares pupils for adult life.

Under the leadership of Gareth Doodes, since 2015 the College has undergone a transformation, as pupil numbers have increased alongside receiving exemplary inspection reports. Recently, the school received an entirely independent Good Schools Guide Review which demonstrated the progress made and the extraordinary opportunities that the College has. Its summary was particularly fulsome in its praise. 'Excellent value for money, something we don't often say in our line of work; sending your child here will genuinely set them up. But also a place that is human in its outlook, healthy, kind, and vigorous in its quest for excellence. As one student put it, 'I love it at this school, and I feel privileged to be here.'
