What the school says...

Skinners Kent Academy opened on September 1st 2009. It is an independent non fee-paying school funded by the Department for Education and supported fully by its lead sponsor The Skinners School, a grammar school for boys and the Skinners Company, and its co-sponsors West Kent College and Kent County Council.

The Skinners Kent Academy is founded on the principles of a culture of high standards and high aspirations, a culture of active participation, an emotionally rich learning environment and an inclusive environment where every child is known and every learner supported.

The main aim of the Academy is to provide the highest quality of education for students initially in Year 7 to Year 11 and in time in the Sixth Form when this is established from September 2012. However, the Academy is more than a new type of school. The Academy aims to raise and reflect aspirations within the local community and provide educational, social and economic benefits for all.

Initially the new Academy is located in the buildings of the former Tunbridge Wells High School. It is intended that the Academy will move to a state of the art 21 million pound new building in 2012. This 21st century building will provide outstanding facilities not only for the Academys students but also for the wider community.

We aim to find and develop everything that is exceptional in each child and let it flourish within a framework of high expectations. We intend to motivate and inspire our students to achieve of their very best, to fly high and to set course on the brightest of futures.

If you would like to hear more about our aspirations and plans, we hold regular briefing events for prospective parents and students. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any further questions about the Academy or would like to attend a briefing event
