Kent College is a very happy and successful school for boys and girls aged 0-18, which is situated in the south east of England on the outskirts of the beautiful and historic city of Canterbury. Canterbury is less than one hour from the centre of London by train and very close to all of the London airports.

The Garden Cottage Nursery (0-3yrs) and Prep school (3-11yrs) are based in an idyllic site, just one mile from the centre of Canterbury. This day and boarding school offers a British education, full of opportunities for children to grow and develop their skills and talents. The School recently introduced a range of innovative one term or one year residential courses to develop talent and excellence in English language, music or sport.

The school Choristers regularly perform at national level. Children thrive in this progressive environment where the emphasis is finding the right pace of education for each individual child.

Kent College believes in making the time table appropriate for each individual child. All children in the junior school take part in the Gifted, Really Enthusiastic, Able and Talented Programme which enables the children to increase their performance even further in their chosen area. These lessons are given curriculum time and are delivered by specialist teachers who develop individual programmes for each pupil based on their needs and interests.

The areas of choice are geared towards maximising each child's chances of winning a scholarship to senior school and gaining entry to the school of their choice.

The school boasts a working farm where students can have a real hands on experience with the animals or even learn to horse ride.
