Values and vision

Duke of Kent School strives for excellence, expects and celebrates effort, nurtures well-being and presents challenge. Our size allows each pupil to be known and cared for as an individual.

Every pupil at Duke of Kent School is known as an individual. This means the school can provide each child with the right balance of challenge and support, to enable maximum achievement.

The School has undergone considerable change in the past 13 years, transforming itself from a Prep to a through school, and growing quickly to its current roll of 340 pupils. Key entry points are Nursery, Year 3 and Year 7. Pupils leave at the end of Year 11 to a wide range of local colleges and sixth forms in the independent and maintained sectors.

Our teaching team is made up of experienced, well qualified and highly motivated teachers who have chosen to join our small community where they have a big impact. A dedicated and comprehensive operations staff team supports the teaching team. Across both support and teaching areas, the School currently employs approximately 100 staff (both full-time and part-time). We are also complimented by a team of committed local Governors with broad expertise.

We have a growth mindset, operating on the principle that all learners can, when properly challenged and supported, achieve extraordinary progress. Our focus is on achieving personal best in every aspect of development. We expect, and celebrate effort.

We expect all members of the community to exercise tolerance, kindness, respect and empathy.  We value diversity and pursue equal opportunities for all.

The School has an inclusive ethos and we are proud of meeting the needs of pupils across a broad range of academic ability. We seek to enable each pupil to achieve his or her potential, to address challenges and to develop interests and aptitudes.
