This school is us. KC girls becoming the people we choose to become. It’s where we reflect on change. Personal and global. It’s where we make mistakes. Get scared, get brave. Give up and then begin again. Where everyday’s a school day for our teachers as they learn from our imagination, ideas and understanding. Where we try out new roles. Act with kindness, care and consideration. Where we show that a school is a meeting of minds, not a static institution. Where we follow traditions not as dusty rigidities, but as moments we breathe life into. This school is us because, soon, very soon, the world will be us.
Kent College Senior School, for girls 11-16, is full of imaginative and exciting young people who are a living, curious part of the world. We take pride in knowing each and every student and believe that no matter the academic starting point; the resilience we build, individual care we give and the appetite our students have to rise to challenges leads them to succeeding in ways they could never have imagined.
Our GCSE results are excellent but grades only tell so much. Behind each personal achievement is a story of challenge, belief, effort and growth.

Our academic success speaks for itself, and in 2023 over 50% of grades were level 7 and above, and 35% of grades were the very top levels of 8 and 9. 40% of pupils achieved level 7 and above in all their GCSEs and one in ten pupils achieved straight 8s and 9s.
These top grades were awarded in a breadth of subjects with over 20% of grades at level 9 in English, Food Technology, Geography, History, Music, PE and Spanish. Over 50% of grades were level 7 and above in additional subjects including Art, Dance, French, German, Latin, Textiles and Further Maths.
Grades only tell part of the story, as many pupils received results above their national predicted grades with 50% of pupils achieving on average one grade higher in all subjects and a quarter of pupils achieving two grades higher. This places us in the top 7% of schools in the UK for value added and one of the very top schools for valued added in English, Geography, History, PE and Food Technology.
