Dover Middle School Programme
Students spend much of their day in the Middle School building, moving to specialist facilities and classrooms that are also used by the High School for subjects such as Visual Arts, Drama, Design and Technology, Music and PE.
Classes remain together for the majority of lessons, except Languages other than English in Grades 6–8. In Grades 7 and 8 students are further split into like-ability groups in both Mathematics and PE, with PE also moving to single-gender classes to encourage maximum participation.
School starts at 8am and finishes at 3pm, although many students will be involved in the Activities programme after school, and some may even be involved in sports training before school
