How to Apply


Stage 1: Register

The first stage is to complete our online application form, Completing an application form does not in any way commit you to the school, nor does it guarantee admission but you do need to complete the form for your child to be assessed for entry to the school.

Please let us know at the application stage if your child needs extra support and provide us with any assessment reports. Kent College offers learning support through EXKCEL (our International School), the Dyslexia Support Centre, and individual tuition. There will be an opportunity to meet our Learning Strategies Coordinator to discuss your child’s needs and to make sure that Kent College is able to meet them, once we have all the relevant information.

Stage 2: Assessments

We hold termly assessments for entry into the school. In all cases, a school report will be requested from the pupil’s current school.

Year 12 (16+) pupils wishing to join from other UK schools and taking GCSEs are usually offered a place based on their school reports, mock GCSE results and meeting our minimum requirements. Pupils normally need a minimum of 6 GCSE passes with at least a grade B in the subjects they choose to study at A level or for the IB Diploma.

Stage 3: An offer of a place

You have met our entry criteria – congratulations!

Once a place has been offered by the school you will be asked to complete an acceptance form and pay a deposit (if applicable) and a tuition fee.

Stage 4: Parents' Contract

We require all parents to complete a parents' contract that sets out the terms and conditions of joining the school. In addition, parents will need to complete the IT usage agreements – these agreements summarise the commitments of the school and of pupils and parents/guardians. They also outline acceptable behaviour within the online school and associated forums.

Stage 5: Induction

All pupils are invited to attend the online New Pupils’ Information Day in June. All new pupils are asked to attend an induction morning before term starts.
