Duke of York - School Hall

£25m investment at Duke of York’s Royal Military School

The Duke of York's Royal Military School in Dover is celebrating completion of a £25 million investment programme. 

Alongside refurbishment of some of the school’s  Grade II listed buildings, contractor BAM Construction built a new sports hall; two two-storey teaching blocks;  four two-storey junior boarding houses; and a two wing two-storey extension to the senior boarding house. 

The new facilities will help the school grow from 468 to 722 pupils.

The Duke of Yorks Royal Military School was founded in 1801 in Chelsea and moved to Dover in 1909.  It continues its strong military traditions as a distinguished state boarding school for children aged 11-18 from both military and civilian backgrounds.
