A LEVELS & CAMBRIDGE TECHNICALS
Kent College offers a wide-variety of A Level and equivalent qualifications, allowing students to specialise in the subjects they are passionate about. We are certified as a top 50 UK Independent school for the percentage of pupils achieving A*- B grades at A Level.
We pride ourselves on the quality of our teaching. Students are engaged in their learning, and our small class sizes allow for increased individual attention, helping students to achieve their best. Teachers’ expectations of pupils are high, but all are aware of the need to support those who may find A Level work more challenging. Students are encouraged to work independently as much as possible, but staff are always happy to offer one-to-one support in order to help students succeed.
We offer a wide range of academic A Levels and a variety of Cambridge Technical Diploma courses; the latter provides a valuable alternative to students whose learning style may be more suited to ongoing projects and research activities rather than formal written examinations.
Please delve into the Curriculum Booklet to find out about the subjects and the various assessment procedures:
A Level students will normally study four subjects in Year 12 and continue with three of these to A Level in Year 13, though timetables can be tailored to individual student’s requirements.
|Mathematics and Further Mathematics
|Drama and Theatre Studies
|Electronics (information available on request)
|Philosophy of Religion and Religious Ethics
|Extended Project Qualification (EPQ)

The Sixth Form Centre offers each day-pupil a permanent base for study and facilities include a common room. Boarders in Year 13 may work in their own study bedrooms.
The well-stocked library is available for those wishing to consult reference material. Those who find independent work difficult, may also be asked to attend supervised study periods. All students are issued with a MacBook laptop computer for their studies and research.
