Small Class Sizes

Small class sizes mean that Dover Court International School offers an exceptional learning experience in a personal learning environment.

  • Learning - Our Approach - Small class sizes

Class Ratio

Our intended maximum class size can be found below. We believe that these sizes go hand in hand with the Dover Court ethos of providing personalised learning for each child. This is substantially below what is allowed by the Committee for Private Education.

Mainstream

  • 22 - 24 intended maximum
  • 2 integrating students
  • 1 fully qualified teacher
  • 1 teaching assistant at KS1 Level

EAL (English as Additional Language)

  • 20 intended maximum
  • 1 fully qualified teacher

Department of Supportive Education (DSE)

  • 10 intended maximum
  • 1 fully qualified teacher
  • 1 teaching assistant at all levels

The benefits of smaller classes

  • Teaching in smaller groups brings several benefits:
  • Students' attention is focused on the lesson
  • Children get to know each other well and form lasting friendships
  • Teachers can adjust their programme to suit every child's needs
  • Students are encouraged to participate and express themselves

Global Campus

While physical class sizes are small, being part of the Nord Anglia Education network provides access to the Global Campus. This allows our students to develop connections and friendships with over 35,000 students around the world.
