Kent College, Canterbury is delighted to announce that we have adopted the BSA COVID-Safe Charter

The Boarding Schools’ Association (BSA), of which Kent College, Canterbury is a member, has published a COVID-Safe Charter which provides boarding schools with a framework on how to safely reopen at the current time.


Kent College, Canterbury has undertaken to adopt the BSA Covid-Safe Charter and to ensure full compliance with any Government quarantine or self-isolation requirements. These include cleaning, testing, staff training, the provision of effective communication with staff, pupils and parents as well as a range of measures which ensure good practice in relation to hand hygiene, and the wearing of masks when appropriate and social distancing.


We will continue to ensure the safety of our community, students and staff and fully support the measures outlined in the Charter. Not only has this helped us to prepare for welcoming some of our students back to the campus this term but it will ensure that we are fully prepared for reopening the whole site in September.

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.
