White Cliffs Primary School

White Cliffs Primary School is a happy place to work and learn. This two-form entry primary academy is set on an elevated position overlooking Dover Castle and is surrounded by beautiful countryside.

The Early Years, Key Stage 1 and Special Educational Needs department is housed in a new, purpose-built, two-storey building. Our creative curriculum is enhanced by a wide variety of extracurricular clubs and activities offered throughout the year which include sports clubs, craft, arts, dance, gardening and puzzle club. We also run a very popular Breakfast Club and Care After School Hours (CAST) facility.

Our children enjoy coming to school and are proud of their school community. They uphold our school ethos to ‘work hard, behave well and care for one another.’ The active College Council represents the views of our children and has been instrumental in bringing about many improvements such as the trim trail, fundraising, charity events and redesigning their uniform. Our fantastic staff team are dedicated to ensuring that every child is happy and successful in all aspects of school life.

Outstanding provision for child and family welfare and wellbeing permeates the ethos of the College. In January 2019, Ofsted graded the school 'good'.
