Located on the outskirts of the beautiful cathedral city of Canterbury, our school is proud both of its 135 years of history and tradition, and of its forward-looking, innovative approach to education. We are a school deeply rooted in the Christian Methodist tradition that welcomes all pupils of every faith and none, and celebrates diversity in all aspects of our school life. ‘Do all the good you can do’ is a guiding principle, and one that allows pupils to grow and develop into confident young adults, aware of their responsibilities and their place in the world.

Many congratulations to the class of 2020 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 2020 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.

Kent College has a reputation for being a friendly and caring school, and our pastoral structure is designed to give all pupils the support they need
from the start of their school career to the day they leave. Our mission is to always be pupil-centred and to focus on enabling every child to become the best he/she can be.
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!
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.
