Well-being is at the heart of what we do and is central to our ethos as a Methodist school. Kent College is well-known for our family atmosphere and supportive environment, and we know it is vital that
our students strike a balance between study and play, whether through sport, music or helping out on the Farm
Guidance and support are available whenever a student may need them, and while all members of staff are more than happy to help with any concerns, every student is supported by their personal tutor who
they meet with daily, their Head of Year who ensures a smooth transition into Sixth Form and guides on university applications and future-planning, and their Head of House, who supports them through their
entire tenure at Kent College.
The house system at Kent College is designed to impart a real sense of belonging, instilling friendly competition and forming lifelong bonds. All pupils and staff of the Senior School belong to one of
these Houses, which are called Augustine, Becket, Chaucer and Marlowe. House competitions range from drama and music, to chess, problem-solving, photography, sport, art and spelling bees--every student is
given a chance to shine
Three times a week, students meet for chapel, with one service being dedicated to upper school students--this is where achievements are celebrated and reflected upon, and our Chaplain is always available
to be a listening ear
There are a variety of activities for health and well-being that students can engage in outside curriculum time, including yoga, conservation, and sports activities. To ensure students stay healthy and
active, Sixth Form students have an afternoon of timetabled physical activity that they choose, including team sports, rowing, badminton and trampolining
Our 24/7 on-site medical team ensures students are cared for by qualified and current nursing staff, overseen by a Senior Nurse . A doctor visits the school twice a week, and a confidential listener is
also available to students should they wish to share any concerns or worries that they have.
