About Dover College

Welcome to Dover College

We are committed to caring for our day and boarding pupils as well as offering each of them the very best opportunities. From Nursery to Sixth Form, everyone enjoys the same level of individualised education.  

Along with our small class sizes and forward-thinking approach we are a College of exceptional academic achievement where confidence is nurtured, innovation is celebrated, inquisitiveness is encouraged, individuality is embraced and creativity is fostered.

Proudly international and inclusive we represent a slice of our inter-connected and diverse society. We feel our greatest strength lies in our home-from-home ethos, encouraged by excellent staff pupil relations and a highly supportive parent body. It is this community philosophy that enables our boarding and day pupils to excel both in and out of the classroom. 

We also benefit from one of the finest school settings, within the grounds of an ancient priory on the scenic Kent Coast. We enjoy an air of tranquility within a stone’s throw of the thriving town centre, harbour and beach and only an hour by train from London.
