Kent College Preparatory School

What says..

Set at the foot of the leafy college campus in a modern purpose build, the prep feels part of, but not joined at the hip to, the senior school.

What the school says...

Kent College Prep School offers a co-ed Nursery 3-5 and girls Prep School 5-11. It is situated in beautiful safe, 80 acre rural estate and shares many state of the art facilities with the Senior School. It is a special place for our pupils to learn, grow and prepare for the future.

At Kent College Nursery and Preparatory School every child is different and we offer an all-round education that will cater for each pupils' individual requirements. Whatever their personality and talents, we aim to ensure that they are happy, confident and successful in all areas of school life.

Academic work, of course, is at the heart of what we do, but we never forget that there is more to childhood and learning than exams. We successfully prepare pupils for a wide range of senior schools at age 11, although the majority of girls will move up to Kent College Senior School. Our aim is to provide every pupil with the encouragement, support and resources to prepare for and achieve an excellent education.

Since January 2021, Salli Hall, previously deputy head for three years, having first joined the school in 2008. After her geography degree from University of Wales, she worked for the London Futures and Options Exchange for 10 years before switching to teaching. Described by parents as a ‘beautiful person’ who ‘everyone smiles and waves at.’ ‘A role model to other staff,’ we also heard. An excellent fit for this positive, unstuffy school, she is calm and relaxed, with a modest aura. Pupils told us, ‘You only want to please her’ and that everyone aspires to ‘be more Mrs Hall!’ They even labelled her ‘World’s Best Teacher’ as part of a year 6 World Book Day event focusing on David Walliams’ The World’s Worst Teachers. Either these pupils know which side their bread is buttered,...

Special Education Needs

At Kent College Prep school, we work closely with class teachers to identify girls who may benefit from additional support, either in the classroom or in a 1:1 setting. Our SENCo can offer educational abilities and achievements assessments in-house, and also advises class teachers on strategies and interventions where necessary. We also work closely with parents to ensure that our girls realise their potential. We have specialist teachers for dyslexia, dyscalculia and dyspraxia support, together with specialist EAL staff. Our dedicated staff work closely with girls who find social communication difficult, nurturing their self-confidence and guiding them towards success.
