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 Schools Group, 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.
The School can proudly boast that almost 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. A select number of pupils benefit from a specialist Dyslexia Unit where pupils are given individual support and direction so that they can progress easily through the school.
