Review of Dover by Walledge on May 13th, 2009
Our Grand daughter joined The infant & Junior school after her previous school closed unexpectedly. We have been so inpressed with the quality of teaching and care that she has received - we just wished we had sent her there first instead!

Review of Dover by Pete on April 2nd, 2006
During WW2 Dover was known as Hellfire Corner [for obvious reasons] & the Medieval and Napoleonic tunnels within the White Cliffs were brought into action as a control centre and hospital, which can be visited today. Hitler allegedly boasted that, on conquering Britain, he would take dinner at Dover Castle.. The railway station is 'Dover Priory', named so due its location being close to the ancient Priory. From here, it is but a short walk into the town, where there is much to see and do. Obviously, the most dominant feature from any point in the town is the great Castle sitting high up on its cliff-top. Henry the Second's Great Keep dates from the 1180's, and is a wonderful experience to walk around. Be warned though, folks.. this castle is said to be very haunted!
