Mission Statement and Ethos


Statement from the Kent College Executive Team 


Dear Girls,

I am sure you are all aware of recent events relating to the murder of George Floyd.  We would like to take this opportunity to say that Kent College stands with its black community. Racism has no place in our school. We have been talking to members of our black community and gathering our thoughts at Kent College, in what has been a difficult and emotional few days. 

 We understand that we have a responsibility both as individuals and as a wider community to embrace the uncomfortable topic of systemic racism and acknowledge our part in reassessing our approach, asking ourselves the question how can we contribute even more to society in a positive and constructive way on the topic of racism and injustice.

We will continue to listen, learn and work with members of our school community to ensure that anti-racism is a priority within our education.

 Kent College Executive Team –

 Julie Lodrick, Headmistress

Angela Jenkins, Bursar

James Mossman, Deputy Head Academic

Gaelle Sullivan, Deputy Head Pastoral

Salli Hall, Head of Prep

The aims of the Methodist schools are:

  • To be caring Christian family communities committed to the development of the full potential of each individual, having regard for their personal attributes in addition to their academic aspirations
  • To maintain high educational standards in all their academic, cultural and sporting activities, stimulating excitement in learning and requiring discipline in study whatever the ability of the child
  • To work with and in the communities they serve
  • To worship as Christians in the Methodist tradition; to uphold Christian values in practice as well as in theory and to make religious education a strong feature of the curriculum, whilst welcoming members of other faiths (and none) in a spirit of openness and tolerance
