Dover Grammar School for Girls
Frith Road, CT16 2PZ, UK Dover



Headteacher: Mrs Judith Carlisle

At Dover Grammar School for Girls our purpose is to inspire academic excellence and personal fulfilment in a forward-looking community by ensuring a high quality of teaching and learning in a vibrant environment.

We encourage and expect high standards and success, and foster a sense of responsibility for self and others. We encourage all girls to contribute to the school, local and global community. Our aim is that girls leave school as thoughtful, well-qualified and ambitious young women, ready to make a significant contribution wherever their futures may take them.

Before entering the school, every girl will be visited in her Primary School and all new pupils will spend a day with us sampling lessons and meeting form tutors in early July. Induction time at the beginning of the Autumn Term, together with continued support and guidance from the form tutors and the Student Development Team, ensures a smooth transition from the primary to the secondary school experience.

We are delighted to announce that from September 2007, we shall be a Specialist Humanities College.


Key Stage 3 (Years 7, 8 & 9)

When girls enter the school in Year 7, they are placed in mixed ability forms. They study a wide range of subjects, working mainly in form groups:

Art      English   French   Geography   History   ICT   Latin   Mathematics   Music   PSE   PE
Performing Arts   Religious Studies   Science   Technology

This programme covers all ten core and foundation subjects of the National Curriculum. Performing Arts is taught in Year 7 and 8. In Year 8, pupils begin German and can choose Spanish in Year 9, Drama or additional PE. Careers Education is introduced in Year 9 PSE, when subject choices are made for GCSE courses. A special booklet decribes the subjects available and a meeting is arranged so that teachers can explain and discuss individual choices with each pupil and her parents.

Teaching time at KS3: 25 hours per week.

Key Stage 4 (Years 10 and 11)

In Key Stage 4, pupils continue to study a broad and balanced curriculum. Each pupil takes nine full GCSE subjects, short courses in IT and a half GCSE in RS and non-examination courses in PE and PSHE. GCSE subjects must include: English, English Literature, Mathematics, Science (Double Award), at least one Modern Foreign Language and either History or Geography (or both). Thus, the GCSE subjects are:

Art   Business Studies and Economics   Design Technology   Drama   English  
English Literature   French  Geography   German   History   Latin   Mathematics   Music   Science   Spanish

Teaching time at KS4: 25 hours per week

The Sixth Form brings change, challenge and opportunity and each girls response will go a long way to determining the quality of her life after she leaves school. Sixth formers have more responsibility for their own work, requiring them to develop excellent study skills and to organise their own time. There is also scope to develop personal interests and to help with extra-curricular activities, ranging from Young Enterprise companies to Public Speaking and fundraising for charities.

Pupils from other schools are welcome to transfer to the Sixth Form. The basic requirment is six GCSE passes, the majority at A or B.
