A place where children feel good about themselves

“Do all the good you can do”

Welcome to the Junior School at Kent College, where we pride ourselves on providing a happy and safe environment where children can thrive and whole families feel a part of our caring community. Kent College is a friendly, happy and caring school. Since 1885, when the school was founded, it has had a long tradition of high achievement in a number of areas including academic, sports, art and music, and has created cherished memories for so many. Kent College is probably best known, though, for its unique atmosphere and spirit where pupils from many backgrounds, faiths and countries learn together in a friendly and happy community.

Many parents ask us when is the best time to start at Kent College Junior School. Each child should begin as soon as the family has made the decision to join. Children arrive throughout the year and settle so quickly because the whole community makes each child and family feel so welcome, happy and excited to come to school each day. This happiness is the essential foundation for our specialist teachers to provide the wonder and inspiration for our children to learn.

Sport, Music and Drama all play a major role in our school life and offer opportunities for everyone, from beginners to elite level performers. We also offer a wide-ranging variety of activities and clubs, as well as the opportunity to work on our School Farm. All of these extra-curricular activities feed into the much wider theme that informs everything we do: that young people who feel good about themselves do well, whatever their chosen path may be.

"If you want your child to have a fun, stimulating, happy experience of school, the Junior KC is a great place for them to be. The children have lots of time and plenty of fresh air outdoors enjoying the beautiful grounds."
"There is plenty of time given for whatever they find fun. Sport, music, art, drama and they are kept on track with academic learning by the staff who are good humoured, encouraging and engaging."
"Maths and English are organised so everyone can go at their own pace. Those that need challenging and stretching get that and those that need extra support also get that, with no sense of 'hierarchy' or elitism."
"It is a truly comprehensive education where every child is valued and supported and encouraged to do their best and enjoy learning."
"Through the pandemic, when the children have been at school, things have felt as normal and happy for them as usual, while reassuringly safe too."
“The pupils’ behaviour towards one another is excellent, reflecting the school’s primary aim to be a caring community” ISI Inspection
“Pupils benefit from an excellent and inventive curriculum. Bespoke timetabling enables the college to meet pupils’ subject choices and for instance additional practice time for advanced athletes or musicians” ISI Inspection
“Going to the farm has made me more confident and determined, and given me valuable team working skills that I’ll need in the future.” KC pupil


Our curriculum is broad, balanced and geared towards the needs and learning patterns of children. All Maths and English lessons take place in the morning with the children getting a break to play in our idyllic grounds between those lessons so ensure they are bright, alert and fresh. After this the children study the more creative subjects along with Music and Sport to ensure that each day is full of different exciting challenges for them all, appropriate to their age and development.

School Farm

Pupils at Kent College are incredibly lucky to have access to the school’s full working farm, set in 50 acres of land. Moat Farm is a short walk from the main Senior school campus and is open to all pupils. It is equally popular with students who want to be Young Farmers who are aiming to pursue a career such as veterinary science, or with those who simply love the experience of spending time with the wide array of farm animals. The school’s Farmers’ Club has been in action for more than 60 years, and it allows pupils to work with all the animals on the farm: a breeding herd of Sussex cattle, pigs, a small flock of sheep, as well as the farm’s hens,
ducks, rabbits and guinea pigs!

Horse Riding at KC

KC Horse Riding is open to all pupils – pupils do not need to have their own pony, so it is a great opportunity for girls and boys who are interested in learning how to ride and look after horses. KC Horse Riding is an approved Pony Club centre, and pupils who ride with us may, if they wish, join the Pony Club and work to achieve lots of different badges (such as mucking out, grooming, horse behaviour, colours and markings), certificates and tests, incorporating horse care and riding.
