Starting in the Early Years, Kent College provides a nurturing, warm environment for girls to embrace their love of learning and opens up a world they can discover whilst learning to push their boundaries and challenge themselves. This lies at the heart of the school’s ethos and continues through to the Prep and Senior School as girls grow, develop and contend with exams and academia.
