Every generation of Kent College students goes on to shape the future in some way. Confidence in creativity, rigour and discipline in practice, and a comfort with risks, mistakes and experimentation comes from KC’s creative and performing arts broad offer. An offer that is taught by actual practitioners – trained dancers, published authors, opera singers, musicians, costume designers, artists, photographers and graphic designers.

Creative Arts

Painting, sculpture, clay, textiles etc etc


Drama is at the heart of KC school life. Pupils from Year 6 are invited to take part in the whole school productions with the Senior School students. Recent musical theatre productions include Stephen Sondheim's Sweeney Todd, The Secret Garden and Phantom of the Opera. The Prep School also puts on its own annual productions including recent Peter Pan.

Performances take place in the Countess of Wessex Theatre (named after KC Old Girl) which is a modern 200 seat venue with a large stage, orchestra pit and professional technical control box. Pupils have the opportunity to perform, be part of the stage and technical crew, make up, set design and costumes.
