Information about this school – Dover Grammar School for Boys

Dover Grammar School for Boys is a smaller than average-sized secondary school. It is a selective boys’ school which admits girls into the sixth form. Most boys have passed the Kent Selective Test.

Most students are from White British backgrounds.

The proportion of students for whom the school receives the pupil premium (additional government funding for students known to be eligible for free school meals, those who are looked after by the local authority and children of service families) is low when compared with schools nationally.

The proportion of disabled students and those with special educational needs supported through school action is well below that found in most schools. The proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is low.

The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for students’ attainment and progress.

The school does not use any alternative provision.

The school does not receive any Year 7 or 8 catch-up premium funding.

There have been significant changes within the senior leadership group since the previous inspection, including the headteacher who has been in post for three years.
