Kent College is a happy and successful school for boys and girls aged 0-18, situated in the southeast of England in the beautiful and historic city of Canterbury - yet less than one hour away from London by train, and close to all London airports.

Our aim is for every child, every day, to be excited to come to and stay in our school, and when they leave, look forward to tomorrow. After an academic morning with accelerated learning options, pupils enjoy a creative afternoon and a wide array of co-curricular activities after school.

The Garden Cottage Nursery (0-3yrs) and Prep School (3-11yrs) offers an innovative British education, full of opportunities for children to grow and develop their skills and talents.

The school has a thriving Music Department, and our Choristers regularly perform at national level. A wide range of sports are offered from hockey to football. The school hosts regular athletic and cross-country events and takes students on sports tours during the year. The school has a new Art department at the main schoolhouse and an outdoor theatre for Drama.

All children in the Junior School take part in our Gifted, Really Enthusiastic, Able and Talented Programme, where specialist teachers develop individual programmes for each pupil based on their needs and interests. The areas of choice maximise each child's chances of winning a scholarship to the Senior School or gaining entry to their school of choice.

The 50 after school clubs offer a variety of interesting, challenging and fun activities which expand pupil's skills and knowledge. The school has a working farm where students can join the Farm Club and learn to care for animals as well as take Horse Riding lessons.
