Location

Duke of York School is a large campus in the countryside just outside the historic port town of Dover and within sight of the famous Norman castle that protects the port. The school is 200 years old but has extremely modern facilities including the new junior accommodation buildings and a state-of-the-art theatre. There are also huge playing fields, a beautiful Edwardian swimming pool and a terrific sports hall.

This centre is perfect for younger students, allowing them to feel comfortable in the multi-bedded dorms making new friends and learning from each other from different cultures. Older students will also benefit from the wide range of facilities the school has to offer including their fitness gym and can take advantage of smaller en-suite rooms if desired.
