A place where students feel good about themselves

“Do all the good you can do”

Welcome to the Sixth Form which represents the pinnacle of the Kent College experience. Here you will have the chance to explore your favourite subjects in greater depth and develop your intellectual curiosity. As Sixth Formers you are also role models for the younger students and we ask you to help us to continue to build the exceptionally caring atmosphere at Kent College. We want you to be happy here, as your well-being is really important, so it is important to strike a balance between all of your activities.

Although a strong academic programme is at the heart of Sixth Form life we also expect students to play a major role in the extra-curricular spheres of the School. The Sixth Form presents numerous opportunities to take on leadership roles which will help to grow and develop your character and confidence. This means that you will flourish and be ready to make the transition to life beyond the School either at university or in the world of work when the time comes.

A Levels

Kent College Canterbury is certified as one of the top 50 UK Independent schools for the percentage of pupils achieving A*- B grades at A Level. In Kent the school is rated in the top 10 for its A level results. The Sixth Form at Kent College offers students an environment that enables them to achieve their best possible grades. Teachers’ expectations of pupils are high, but all are aware of the need to support those for whom A-level work is a challenge, and staff are always willing to offer one-to-one help. Working conditions are therefore disciplined but flexible, and students are encouraged to organise their own learning as far as possible. We offer a traditional suite of academic A-levels but also a broad range of other options including Applied courses and OCR Nationals.

International Baccalaureate

We are very flexible when it comes to constructing the timetables for Diploma candidates and encourage applicants to identify courses and subjects they wish to study even if we do not offer them as we are able bespoke most options. Kent College offers outstanding levels of teaching and support for the IB Diploma with additional classes and tutoring available as standard to ensure the very best outcomes for individuals.

The academic life of the IB student is complemented with a rich and diverse extra curricular programme at Kent College. There are large numbers of clubs and societies for every interest and new ones established each year to meet the changing desires of our students. National representation in sport is common with equal standards in Music and Drama, there is simply something for everyone at Kent College. The pastoral system in the school is highly valued and central to our ethos as a Methodist school, the family atmosphere and supportive environment in the boarding and day school means that well rounded global citizens leave the school on graduation from the IB.

Academic Results

Many congratulations to the class of 2021 as Kent College students and staff celebrated another successful year for IB, A-level and GCSE. The results reflected the consistently high standards that the school has been achieving for many years across a wide variety of subjects and various different branches of study.

We are proud of all our students and the contribution they have made to the school and to the local and global community. The cohort of 2021 deserves to be particularly recognised for their hard work, professionalism and how they coped during the challenging period of lockdown in the UK using the opportunity to pursue academic enrichment and service.
