STUDENTS from the Duke of York’s Royal Military School (DOYRMS) in Dover welcomed a group of pupils from King’s School in Gütersloh, Germany, to share a packed schedule of sports, music and activities.

King’s, a secondary in North Rhine-Westphalia which serves the children of British military families stationed in the area, headed to Kent as part of a collaboration with British Forces Germany to provide a natural progression for students when the school closes in 2019.

During their stay, pupils enjoyed outings to Dover Castle and Canterbury Cathedral and had the chance to visit other local attractions such as Deal Castle and St Margaret’s Bay.

Youngsters from both schools got involved in a wide range of sport and recreational activities and the visit included steel band and snare drum workshops as well as a chance to see the school’s military band in action.

DOYRMS principal Alex Foreman said: “This visit was an opportunity for pupils to establish friendships and for the students of King’s School to see and experience just what the Duke of York’s Royal Military School has to offer.”
