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 61 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, in an environment that is dynamic and engaging, 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. In the Sixth Form, students are given the choice of pursuing the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) or the more vocational International BTEC Levels 2 and 3 Diploma in Business. With our differentiated style and supportive community, the students are in centre of everything we do and continuously achieve excellent exam results, preparing them for success at University and in their future careers.
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. We are passionate about inclusion and it is our mission to nurture the potential of every single student in a dynamic and challenging learning environment. We are also expanding our facilities to enable a dedicated area to provide even better support to meet the needs of our students.
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.
