The Kent College Forces community is very special and staff are experienced in dealing with the particular needs of these families. Many boarders have parents who are serving with the British Armed forces and are lively, kind, tolerant and loyal members of this community. As for all our girls, the safety, security and happiness of each boarder is paramount and all staff ensure that they understand each girls emotional and physical needs. Parents and Guardians are always well informed.
Living at KC
Girls thrive in our beautiful, rural grounds and homely boarding houses. They are given the freedom and support to grow into outstanding young ladies who have a healthy sense of belief in their own abilities.
All girls receive superb, nurturing care and support from our pastoral team. This includes: dedicated boarding staff, form tutors, pastoral and academic leadership teams, mentors, special needs coordinators, subject teachers, resident chaplain, school counsellor and school nurse. We are a vibrant, caring school with a wealth of experience in supporting Forces families and caring for your daughter.
The School offers members of the Armed Forces a 20% discount off the full boarding fees.
What Forces parents say about KC:
"In regard of serving overseas, the school has been very understanding, certainly with recent conflicts. The school fully understands the pressures that the forces family are under and the children have received special care and special attention whenever I've been away, which is absolutely first class."
"I felt selfish that we hadn't come on board earlier."
"Our youngest girl loves it and has made wonderful friends."
"We didn't even have to discuss it when we drove away, we knew that's the one!"
"I take my hat off to Kent College. For our daughter it was the right school and has developed her in ways we weren't expecting. It is truly remarkable."
"We loved the atmosphere and we signed the registration forms and the girls began their life here at Kent College."
Life after Kent College
Every year our academic results at GCSE and A Level surpass girls' expectations. Working from an early age with our school careers advisor, form tutors and subject teachers helps girls to find their vocation and the majority of our Sixth form leavers gain superb university offers.
Kitchener University Scholarships
In recent years, several of our Year 13 leavers gained Kitchener Scholarships out of a total of 25 offered in the UK. We are the only school in the country to have been awarded this number and were extremely proud of our students for achieving these well deserved scholarships.
The Council of the Lord Kitchener Memorial Fun offers up to maximum of 25 scholarships. The scholarship is worth £750.00 and is paid to scholars at the beginning of their university course. To be eligible, a candidate must be British and the daughter of a parent who has served at any time or who is currently serving on a full time engagement in HM Armed Forces. They must be admitted as an undergraduate to a university to read for a first degree and be over 17 and under 21 years of age. Our Director of Career Pathways and Head of Sixth Form can advise your daughter on this nearer the time.
