Our investment, our teachers, our community

The Dover, Deal and Sandwich Partnership is a group of like-minded schools who work together for the good of the students in our community. We believe in giving our young people access to first class teachers and, collectively, are committed to investing in the teachers of the future.

Teaching is the most rewarding, satisfying, challenging and, yes, sometimes frustrating career there is. The DDS schools – which include Grammar Schools, Secondary Moderns and Primary Schools – through working together can offer aspiring teachers an excellent experience base from which to launch their careers.

As the lead school for the provision of School Direct Teacher Training, Sandwich Technology School has a long and proud tradition of Staff Development and developing outstanding teachers. The school is delighted to now be working with the DDS partner schools to enable talented people to enter this wonderful profession in our area.
