A current parent perspective on the UK's top schools


INSIDE SCOOP Dover College Effingham Crescent, Dover, Kent, CT17 9RH Admissions: 01304 244522 • Day/Full 3-18 SE The Inside Scoop from a current parent… We chose Dover College for its family feel; Everyone knows everyone and all staff have a genuine interest in the academic and pastoral welfare of the pupils. We also loved the convenient location and campus. It’s a stunning, peaceful setting, with delightful buildings and grounds, a mini Hogwarts complete with ancient Great Hall and staff and prefects in flowing gowns! Our children are confident and assured; our elder son has thrived and is unrecognisable from the child he was at entry four years ago. Both boys have been given opportunities to lead and relish the challenge of doing so. The school believes that to lead is to serve, so the older children are expected to help with the younger ones. As parents, we love: The sense of belonging we all, as a family, feel. The Headmaster and his team have a clear vision for the future of the school and are committed to making it the very best it can be through consultation, investment and leadership. The countless opportunities the school presents to our children. Our children love: The food! We have so much choice and all of it’s delicious! Sports – rugby, cricket, football,tennis and fives. Afterschool clubs like, digital media and drama and tennis. There is so much choice. HEADS UP “Ambitious, caring, small enough to know everybody yet big enough to stretch them, Dover College has been recognised by the TES Awards as one of the finest schools in the country. An extraordinary curriculum and extra-curriculuar activities give pupils the very best start in life. Think differently!” Gareth Doodes, Headmaster Open days: 18th May 2019. 28 Read the full review on ★ 2019
