Sixth form is a key time in any teenager’s life – with a wide spectrum of choices both in the academic curriculum and in its extra- curricular activities, Kent College prides itself on offering a range of exciting possibilities for all of its pupils. Kent College is a leading IB World School, with results that consistently put the school in the top 10 in the UK. The breadth of skills fostered in the International Baccalaureate is an excellent preparation for higher education and for the world of work. The school’s A- level results are equally as impressive as its IB scores, with the percentage of A*-B grades consistently above those of local grammar schools. Some students choose to combine A-levels with Cambridge Technicals, which offer a valuable alternative in areas such as Business and ICT. Whatever academic pathway students follow in the Sixth form, small class sizes ensure that teachers know each pupil well, allowing them to give the individual attention that is the hallmark of education at Kent College. This is mirrored by the excellent pastoral system, which is highly valued and central to the school’s Methodist ethos. Beyond the classroom, the extended school day at Kent College gives every pupil the opportunity to engage in the up to 70 clubs and societies that are available, including the Duke of Edinburgh award. Their doors are always open for new families to have a personalised tour of the school. Kent College 01227 763 231 155
