I can't comment on the old DGSB as I am an Old Langtonian (and hated every minute of it!) but this will be a new beginning and hopefully take lots of boys (and girls in the 6th form) from a deprived area like Dover and give them a chance to go onto bigger and better things
My son loves the old / new school but the teachers are not anywhere near what I, and others here, endured and remember from back in the 70s / 80s. Although some have good memories, once it is demolished, those demons can hopefully be buried.
(Simon Langton wasn't much better, although I stayed for A levels, the two "U"s I got were not much help in my later life!)
