Kent College is a vibrant UK independent co-educational day and boarding school situated in an idyllic semi-rural position on the edge of the historic city of Canterbury. Its Infant and Junior School is just over a mile away. The Channel ports and tunnel are half an hour’s drive away, as is the Eurostar terminus, so Kent College is ideally placed for travel to Continental Europe. London is an hour and a half away by train or car.
Part of the Methodist Group of schools, it has a reputation of being particularly friendly and welcoming, with outstanding pastoral care. While its Christian heritage continues to have a major influence on the school’s policies and activities, Kent College happily welcomes pupils of all faiths, and none. Its boarders, who make up roughly one third of total student numbers in the Senior School, come from some 30 countries, and this gives cultural richness and diversity to the whole school. Recent heavy investment in the boarding houses has brought accommodation up to an exceptional standard.
A particular feature is the school’s International Study Centre where pupils whose spoken or written English need improvement can receive specialist language tuition prior to integrating into the main school curriculum. Academic results are excellent and music, drama and art flourish. Above all, each individual pupil receives every possible help to realise his or her full potential.
