Duke of York's Royal Military School hosts open morning
1st October 2015

Parents now have choice of full and weekly boarding.

The Duke of York’s Royal Military School is to stage an open morning on Saturday October 10, in which prospective parents and pupils can see the huge variety of educational and recreational activities available at the boarding school for pupils aged 11 to 18.

The historic school in Dover, Kent, has long been a favourite with military families but is now open to all and has attracted non-military families since 2010 because of its traditional ethos and academic success. From this September, parents have the choice of full and weekly boarding for their children.

At the open morning, which starts at 9am, school tours will be hosted by current students and key teaching staff, including taster lessons and examples of sporting and ceremonial activities, ending in an informal buffet lunch.

Visitors can inspect the results of a recent £25 million investment in new and refurbished buildings, including a purpose-built sports facility with gym and climbing wall, drama studio, music suites, and specially-designed boarding accommodation.

Attendance is by registration only – call 01304 245073 to book a place or email

Chris Russell, the school’s Executive Principal, said: “We welcome applications from any student who wants to study GCSEs and A Levels in our unique and supportive school community. Our military ethos and active lifestyle opportunities help develop character and life skills and every student is encouraged to discover their potential.”
