We have a Kent College tradition. In their first year with us pupils are represented by trees planted in the idyllic woodlands surrounding their new school. As they put down roots of friendship, knowledge and understanding, and grow in resilience, strength and the art of living, so their tree matures too. Stand in our forest and look up to see the crown shyness – that remarkable and beautiful pattern made from branches of individual trees reaching out to each other, but leaving space through which the sky can pour. Watch Kent College pupils together and you’ll see something similar, remarkable individuals reaching out to others and making moments through which the future can pour.


Welcome to Kent College Pembury, an independent day and boarding school for children from 3 years to 18.

You will feel the magic of Kent College as soon as you step onto our beautiful campus. It is a place which inspires curiosity, opens minds and unleashes imaginative ideas. Through kindness and compassion, our community supports each person to find their own unique strengths and talents and realise their potential. Our wonderful students recognise that hard work and ambition, combined with care and kindness to those around them is what brings success. They go on to use these skills to shape the future in a positive way. Do come and visit us to feel the magic for yourself.
