Where excellence is a habit!
Nestling in idyllic surroundings on the outskirts of Canterbury, Kent College provides an education for 702 children from the age of 3 to 18. The majority of the children come from the local community with slightly less than a quarter being made up of boarders who come from over 40 different countries around the world.
Close to London
Our boarding arrangements can include a London transport package which allows children to enjoy the security of accompanied travel on the fast train (55minutes) to and from St Pancras and the school on a Friday and Sunday evening. Thus giving children the best of both worlds: an excellent education in the Kent countryside and quality time with their parents at the weekend.
Our own school buses bring students in from all over the county including: Ashford; Folkestone; Dover; Sittingbourne: Hythe; Sandwich and Herne Hill. Working parents take advantage of the fact that the school offers an extended school day to all of its pupils and even the option of staying over night when the need arises. This extra time at school is put to excellent use and contributes greatly to the undoubted success of all of the pupils.

Kent College is leader in this field having had one to one computer support since 2010. The school and boarding communities enjoy full wifi coverage, allowing students the very best in worldwide communication.
