The Duke of York's Royal Military School

A co-educational boarding school for students aged 11-18

Health and Wellbeing


Our aims at The Duke of York’s Royal Military school include building on the good practice of the staff to ensure student needs are fully met, linking the school to the community and ensuring students receive a well-rounded and holistic education to provide them with the ability and resilience to enter and thrive in the world of adulthood, whilst taking the best Dukie qualities with them.

The School has a depth and breadth of skills and knowledge when it comes to welfare and safeguarding, which is utilized and shared across the boarding houses, by the house teams led by Edward, to support our students. The staff of the Medical Centre, SENCo department and our RSM also take a keen interest in the wellbeing of our students and offer a high level of support. In addition, the School works closely with partnership agencies from the Kent area to ensure the correct approach is always taken for our students.  

The Safeguarding Team consists of: Mr Edward Pallant - Vice Principal (Pastoral) & DSL, Mr Stu Hall - DSL, Miss Sarah Fox - DSL, Mr Alex Foreman - Principal, Mrs Emma Dixon - Vice Principal, Mr Jolyon Marsh - Assistant Principal, Mrs Avril Saunderson - SENCo, and Miss Kate Stone - Medical Centre Lead, with administrative support provided by Miss Holly Mullins.
