The Duke of York’s Royal Military School’s new Principal Alex Foreman will be greeting prospective pupils and their parents at an open morning to view the excellent educational and recreational facilities available to weekly and full-time boarding students aged 11 to 18.
Open Morning attendance on March 11 at the Dover School is by registration only – visit www.doyrms.com to book a place. The morning starts at 9am with a welcome from the Principal, followed by hosted student tours, taster lessons and examples of sporting and ceremonial activities, ending in an informal buffet lunch.
Principal Alex Foreman said: “Being a newcomer to the school, it’s difficult not to be impressed by the academic facilities and active lifestyle opportunities on offer. We have a proud military ethos which focuses on developing character and life skills. Each student is encouraged to realise their own potential and achieve the best they can. I’m looking forward to meeting pupils and their parents who are seeking to join our supportive community.”
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.
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.
