Entry to Dover College is designed to be seamless.

We have high standards and expectations, but will select students on potential as much as on present ability. We don’t believe in pre-testing, and we don’t believe in the 11+ system for entry to the senior school which can label children early in their academic lives and cause more harm than good. You would imagine such a system would affect results, but you’d be wrong. Our A level and GCSE grades are commensurate with competitor independent schools across the South East.

In addition, our value added results, where pupils achieve grades far higher than originally predicted upon entry to the College, are some of the best in the UK.

There is a reason for that. We nurture pupils, and encourage them to succeed in an environment that exudes warmth and positivity - and we encourage them to constantly think differently.
