This is senior

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.

Our Approach

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 for overcoming 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.

Academic Success

Our academic success speaks for itself, and in 2021 over 60% of our students achieved Level 7 and above across all subjects.

Not only that but the Centre of Evaluation and Monitoring at the University of Durham ranks Kent College as one of the top 5 schools in the UK for Value Added at GCSE. This means our students achieve at least one grade higher than predicted, and we are the top school nationally for English with students regularly achieving over one and a half grades higher than predicted.
