Kent College is a very 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 and Prep school are based on its own site in idyllic countryside, just one mile out of the centre of Canterbury and close to the Senior School. This is a day and boarding school and offers a traditional British education, full of opportunities for children to grow and develop their skills and talents. We have recently introduced a range of innovative one term or one year residential courses to develop talent and excellence in English language, music or sport.

Nestling in an idyllic setting on the outskirts of Canterbury, children thrive in this traditional day and boarding school where the emphasis is finding the right pace of education for each child. Boarding starts at the age of 7 with accompanied travel to and from London, on HS1, at weekends an easy option for working parents.

We believe in making the time table appropriate for each individual child. All children in the junior school take part in our 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.

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 ride.
