Information about this school – Dover Grammar School for Girls

Dover Grammar School for Girls is a smaller than average-sized selective girls’ school. It has a humanities specialism.

The vast majority of students are from White British backgrounds. The proportion of students who speak English as an additional language is below average.

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, looked after children and service family children) is below average but above that of similar selective schools. There are no looked after children and no children from service families currently at the school.

The proportion of disabled students and those with special educational needs supported through school action is low compared with most schools. The proportion supported through school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is also 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.

Boys are admitted into Year 12 and make up just under a sixth of the sixth form roll. A small number of students from a neighbouring school also attend for some sixth form lessons.
