Dover College

Co-educational boarding and day in Dover, Kent

Small is beautiful! The values of the family run through Dover College. Our class sizes allow us to nurture confidence, encourage inquisitiveness and celebrate individual success.

Where Confidence is Nurtured and Individuality Encouraged.

We are academically ambitious. We take the time to get to know each child so that the right balance of challenge and support is in place based on their needs. We recognise that success is as unique as the individual and celebrate achievement where it represents the personal best for the child. We like to think differently. Our distinctive curriculum focusses not only on achieving excellent results but also developing creative minds ready for the challenges ahead. We have a strong focus on technology in the classroom and have introduced a 1:1 iPad scheme for pupils.

We are a member of the Round Square organisation, a group of 150 worldwide schools, and share their commitment to an all-round education. We prize their core values of internationalism, democracy, environmentalism, adventure, leadership and service. We encourage all pupils to participate in sport, music and drama, recognising the way these areas promote leadership, teamwork and self-belief.

We are international and local. We welcome pupils from across Europe, Africa, Asia and the Americas, encouraging everyone to be inclusive, unprejudiced, cosmopolitan and outward looking.


The College’s aim is every child should be valued. As one of our pupils recently said, “I love it at this school, and I feel privileged to be here.”
