The school is situated in a semi-rural setting, overlooking the historic city of Canterbury.

It helps pupils to build a strong work ethic, and to develop the confidence to excel in their chosen fields.

Attention to the individual is key to academic success at Kent College. Small class sizes mean that teachers get to know each pupil, to assess their needs and monitor their progress closely.

Individual Progress

With an exceptionally broad curriculum that facilitates a vast range of interests and skills, our success comes from the individual approach we take to building a bespoke timetable for students.
