About the junior school

The school is situated in delightful grounds on the edge of the historic City of Canterbury. Our Senior School, to which most of our pupils transfer at 11, is just over a mile away. The main school building was once the home of the Victorian artist Thomas Sidney Cooper R.A. and he lived here for 50 years, spending much time and money in developing the glorious gardens in which our children can play.

We have a small but very comfortable Boarding House within the main building, and welcome full, weekly or occasional boarders from the age of seven upwards. With London under an hour away, our boarding package can include accompanied travel to and from St. Pancras at the weekends allowing a happy balance for busy London living families.

Senior School

About the senior school

Kent College is situated in a delightful 80 acre semi-rural location adjoining 200 acres of ancient woodland. The idyllic campus overlooks the historic city of Canterbury and is within 55 minutes of London and its airports. Kent College is part of the Methodist Independent Schools' Trust though it happily welcomes pupils of all faiths, and none. It is renowned as a particularly friendly and welcoming school with a strong family feeling.

The high expectations of the school mean that pupils of all ages are given every opportunity and support to achieve academic excellence. The school is regularly placed in the top 100 independent boarding schools for its academic achievement. The International Baccalaureate Diploma runs alongside A-levels in the Sixth Form. The school's IB results consistently place it in the top 10 nationally.
