Boarding at Kent College Pembury
Kent College Pembury is a vibrant and exciting place with a strong sense of community and superb pastoral care. Boarding is central to the school’s life and Christian ethos and is one of its great strengths. They are very fortunate to have such a close-knit boarding community at the heart of the school. Girls are able to be full or weekly boarders. They also have a very popular flexi-boarding community for day pupils which the parents find to be an invaluable service and which embodies the 24/7 life of the school.
Girls thrive in the beautiful, rural grounds and outstanding care and nurturing. We believe that the family atmosphere present in the boarding houses has an extremely positive effect on all of the girls and staff here.
Boarders at Kent College learn to respect their own and other people’s property, the importance of being kind and courteous and taking responsibility for one’s own actions. The spiritual development of the boarders is also an important part of their ethos; in an increasingly individualistic world, these qualities stand boarders in good stead.
Above all, Kent College is a vibrant and welcoming community, where individuals are valued for who they are and the sound of laughter reverberates throughout the School with an adventure to be had every day.
