Formerly known as St Radigund's Community Primary, the school has been through a radical reorganisation so that it is, for all practical purposes, a new school. It has been substantially refurbished. It has a new name, new governors and all of the teaching staff were appointed in 2006 or 2007. In January 2007, the school federated with Astor College, a nearby secondary school, as part of the Dover Federation for the Arts. The federation's governing body is responsible for all of the schools within it. Astor's principal is executive headteacher of the federation. White Cliff's head of college was appointed in April 2007. Although it is organised in seven single-age classes, the school is smaller than average. The number of pupils with learning difficulties is more than twice the national average. There are particularly high numbers of pupils with dyslexia and behavioural and emotional difficulties. A high proportion of the pupils come from socio-economically deprived backgrounds. The school has been part of national and local authority initiatives aimed at raising standards. The school's federation with Astor means that it shares that school's arts specialism. In addition, it now provides a wide range of extended services, including on-site medical, social work and internet café facilities for families.
