Welcome to Kent College Junior School

Children follow individualised programmes that recognises that all children flourish at different rates and in response to different challenges. These challenges must be appropriate and delivered in a positive, encouraging way. All children benefit from our accelerated learning programme where they are taught numeracy and literacy in groups that are ability based rather than age based. All children receive a wide and varied range of opportunities that will allow them to enjoy a variety of activities and wherever appropriate strive for excellence.
