  • More information
    • The Duke of York's Royal Military School is based on a beautiful 150-acre site on the outskirts of Dover, Kent.

      With the white cliffs of Dover on our doorstep and on a clear day France can be seen, we offer a state boarding facility with a military ethos.  The school has it's own colours, which were presented by our patron HRH The Duke of Kent.

      With 500 students on roll we can offer a co-educational education to students from YR7 to YR13. We have a dedicated Sixth Form Centre, Centenary House which is the stepping stone from home/school to either University or into the workplace. The school has a set of values:courage, integrity, respect, commitment, loyalty and self-discipline.

      These values are important in every day life as well as life in the classroom.

      As a state boarding school KCC will cover the costs of education and parents are asked to pay for the cost of boarding.

      We welcome applications from military and non-military families with our current on roll students split 50/50 from military and non-military families.

      Our Whole School Open Morning is on Saturday 10th March 09:00 to 12:30.
