DGSB Consultation on Admissions for September 2020

The Governing Body of Dover Grammar School for Boys wish to consult on proposed changes to the School’s admission arrangements for the September 2020 pupil intake.  The consultation will take place for six weeks between Monday 29 October 2018 and Monday 10 December 2018.

There is one new criterion to the admission arrangements we are considering, to follow after the current “Children in Local Authority Care”:

  1. Children Previously in State Care Outside of England – Children who appear to have been in state care outside of England and ceased to be in state care as a result of being adopted.  A child is regarded as having been in state care in a place outside of England if they were accommodated by a public authority, a religious organisation or any other provider of care whose sole purpose is to benefit society.

If you would like to comment on the proposed amendment please do so by Monday 10 December, either by email at office@dgsb.co.uk or by post, to Dover Grammar School for Boys, Astor Avenue, Dover, Kent, CT17 0DQ.

Dover Grammar students hunt for the Higgs boson at CERN

Students from Dover Grammar School for Boys have been inspired by a visit to CERN, home of the Large Hadron Collider.  In early November the intrepid Y13 Physics students discovered how CERN is helping to answer some of the most fundamental questions such as how did the Universe begin & what are the basic building blocks of matter?  Scientific breakthroughs such as the discovery of the Higgs boson require experimental machines on the large scale, and the students gained an appreciation of the technical and engineering challenges that the multinational experimental collaborations at CERN face.  “The highlight was probably visiting the Large Hadron Collider,” said Mr. Oniye, “although I enjoyed the boat trip across Lake Geneva too – such a beautiful city.”  The UK has been a member of CERN since the organisation was founded in 1954.  Membership allows British researchers to take a wide variety of roles that contribute to CERN’s on-going success; from recently qualified technicians and university undergraduates gaining their first taste of working in an international environment to PhD students analysing experimental data and experienced engineers and physicists leading projects or representing their experimental collaborations.  The [insert name of school] students’ visit was led by a member of the CERN community who talked from personal experience about their contribution to CERN’s research programme.  STFC’s Executive Chair, Professor Mark Thomson, said “The scale of the science and technology at CERN is awe-inspiring.  There is no doubt that seeing it at first hand, and meeting the people who work on the experiments, can influence young people’s future education and career choices.”
