Space

to Play

Kent College’s extensive facilities provide the perfect platform for challenge and development. This ensures pupils are rewarded with skills which enable them to be equipped for life. A fabulous floodlit all-weather pitch is in the heart of the Senior School and an impressive Sports Centre has helped cultivate numerous international sportsmen and women. The School Farm and Equine Centre provide a unique opportunity for pupils to experience a wider approach to education. The Music Centre offers state of the art facilities for

all aspects of the subject. The provision for Music Technology is now amongst the best in the country. These amenities have helped the College produce two symphony orchestras and two choirs as well as providing the opportunity for most students to learn to play at least one musical instrument. Recent investment has brought seamless wireless (Wi-Fi) Internet connection to all four boarding houses. Students and parents benefit from flexibility as the school provides termly, weekly and occasional boarding.


Proud

to

Achieve


Proud to Achieve Academic success is central to Kent College's purpose but students achieve in all areas of school life ensuring they fulfil their potential. Whether they are writing their first word, receiving their A-level results or completing a length in the swimming pool, achievement is common place for all students throughout the College. Practically all sixth formers go on to their first choice University, including Oxford and Cambridge. This academic strength reflects the small class sizes and the quality of the exceptionally well-qualified, enthusiastic and experienced teaching staff. The school’s excellent

academic record is reflected in continuing success at GCSE and A Level where a broad curriculum encompasses every interest. Nevertheless, the school focuses on the development of the whole individual and excellent facilities are augmented by an impressive array of extra-curricular activities. The standards in sport and music are consistently high, generating international standard athletes and award winning musicians. Major tours take place regularly in both sport and music.
