Academic Enrichment

Our most academically able pupils will be stretched and challenged through our Able Interested and Motivated Student (AIMS) programme, and will score the top results to enable them to go on to their chosen university, course or career.

The High Aspirational Learning Opportunities (HALO) lectures encourage students to be curious, critical and deep thinkers. The speakers explore a variety of cultural, scientific and political themes which take the pupils’ thinking beyond the limits of the curriculum.

Supported Learning

A programme of support has been designed for pupils with a range of SEND and emotional and social needs. Highly focused skill development is delivered within the timetable and pupils work closely with key staff including specialist SEND teachers to refine their skills, learn new strategies and embed their learning toolkit.

Our inclusive approach means that is Kent College is right for your child and we can support them, then they will thrive here.
