Welcome to Kent College Junior School

Children follow individualised programmes that recognises that all children flourish at different rates and in response to different challenges. These challenges must be appropriate and delivered in a positive, encouraging way. All children benefit from our accelerated learning programme where they are taught numeracy and literacy in groups that are ability based rather than age based. All children receive a wide and varied range of opportunities that will allow them to enjoy a variety of activities and wherever appropriate strive for excellence.

KC Farm and Horse Riding

Pupils at Kent College are incredibly lucky to have access to the school’s full working farm, set in 50 acres (20 hectares) of land, and run by Mr Ben McNally – known to staff and pupils as Farmer Ben. Moat Farm is a short walk from the main Senior school campus, and is open to all pupils from both the Junior and Senior schools.

Good Schools Guide

The UK’s number one school guide advises parents on all aspects of education for over 1,000 schools and Kent College Canterbury is proud to be one of them. We welcomed their consultants for interviews with our Head Teachers, current parents and pupils in order to give prospective parents a credible, transparent and trusted view of our school.
