The Duke of York’s Royal Military School is holding an open morning on Saturday, October 8, for parents and pupils to view its excellent educational and recreational facilities available to weekly and full-time boarding students aged 11 to 18.
Open morning attendance at the Dover school is by registration only – visit www.doytms.com to book a place.
The historic school has long been a favourite with military families but is now open to all. Since 2010, it has attracted students from non-military families because of its traditional ethos and academic success.
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.
During the last academic year, students were visited by Prince Harry, Prince Edward Duke of Kent and the British Army’s Chief of the General Staff, General Sir Nicholas Carter, who officially opened new teaching facilities as part of a £24.9 million build and refurbishment project which visitors can inspect. Included are new and refurbished buildings, a purpose-built sports facility with gym and climbing wall, drama studio, music suites, and specially-designed boarding accommodation.
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.”
