United Kingdom Armed Forces Cricket is very proud to have the students of The Duke of York’s Royal Military School performing at the Inter Services T20 at Lord’s on May 19th
We are enormously proud to have The Duke of York’s Royal Military School performing at the Inter-Services Twenty20 Cricket Tournament at Lords.
Founded in 1803, and sponsored by the Ministry of Defence, The Duke of York’s Royal Military School is a boarding school for students aged 11 to 18, located in Dover, Kent. With a rich military ethos and heritage, the School educates the children of many Forces families, and provides excellent pastoral care and support to its 500 students.
The School has a full Military Marching Band of 90 students, incorporating a corps of 28 drummers and buglers. Marching Band members are recruited from Year 9 to Year 13 and selected for their talent and enthusiasm. The musicians have extra accoutrements on their Parade uniforms and wear a cap, distinct from the usual beret.
The Marching Band truly comes into its own on splendid occasions such as the School’s Trooping the Colour on their prestigious Grand Day, and has had the great honour of playing at other events including the England/Argentina rugby game at Twickenham and the Police passing out Parade at Hendon.
The School accepts applications from any child wishing to study with us, please visit www.doyrms.com for more information.
