Kent College has a long tradition of recognising and rewarding outstanding ability by awarding scholarships for academic achievement, the IB Diploma (Year 12 only), and in Art, Design (Years 9 and 12 only) Drama, Music and Sport. Scholarships are designed to attract talented pupils from all backgrounds who would benefit from the unique educational experience offered by Kent College. The school undertakes to nurture and develop a scholar’s talent; in return scholars are expected to make a significant contribution to school life.


Scholarships are offered to pupils at Year 7 (age 11+), Year 9 (age 13+) and Year 12 (age 16+). As a member of the Headmasters’ and Headmistresses’ Conference (HMC), the group of schools that includes the top independent schools in the country, it is agreed that the maximum amount of scholarship available will be 50% of tuition fees. It is possible to be awarded a scholarship in more than one area but the maximum overall value will not exceed 50%.

Admissions Process

Kent College is a non-selective school and welcomes pupils from all backgrounds. Pupils usually join in Year 7 (11+), Year 9 (13+) or Year 12 (16+), but it is possible to start in other year groups if a place is available. International students may also apply for a Year 11 (15+) pre-Sixth form course.


You can choose between a day place, a full boarding place or one of the various flexible boarding options that are on offer. International students may also apply to join our International Study Centre.


Applicants would normally have a meeting with the Head Master or a member of the Senior Management Team, visit and tour of the school, and meet with the Registrar. All students are required to complete entrance exams before a place can be offered.
