Dover Court International School

Dover Court International School is a well-established British international school. We offer a broad, balanced and differentiated programme operating within the framework of the English National Curriculum. Our mission is to create an inclusive and diverse community that enables all students to realise their academic and personal potential. We are passionate about how children learn and are committed to ensuring that the aspirations and potential of every student are fostered and nurtured. As part of Nord Anglia Education we benefit from the opportunities gained from being part of a family of over 55 schools.

DCIS starts in the Lower Primary School with our Nursery and Reception years where our dedicated and experienced teachers provide structured learning through play, within the Early Years Foundation Stage. Children the progress through Key Stages 1 and 2, following a well-planned and tested programme of study. Through the International Primary Curriculum we are able to teach the National Curriculum in a thematic way.

Our Secondary School offers a balanced educational programme that spans across humanities, mathematics, arts, languages and sciences, based on the English National Curriculum. In Key Stage 4 students sit examinations in a range of subjects, earning iGCSE. The Sixth Form offers the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme which prepares our students for any future study option them may follow.

Students who do not speak English as their first language can access additional support through our English as Additional Language Programme. English levels are measured by using assessments that link to the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) so that we can best meet the needs of each student.

Our Department of Supportive Education provides an environment where students of all abilities flourish. It is our mission to nurture the potential of every single student in a dynamic and challenging leaning environment.

At DCIS, academic success is as important as all-round development and we try to live up to our motto every day. Nurturing Ambition – Celebrating Diversity.
