Kents Hill Park is a brand new 'free school' catering for ages 4 - 16 and dedicated to providing an exceptional education for children. We believe the 'all-through' model offers enormous benefits for parents and pupils: a seamless academic transition at age 11, individual support, a guaranteed place in the secondary provision at age 11 and the opportunity for each child's learning journey to be personalised.
Kents Hill park School will provide a high-quality academic and vocational education in a supportive and challenging environment. We will provide excellent teaching and encourage all children to develop their love of learning, both inside and outside the classroom. We will have high expectations of behaviour and conduct and will provide a wide-range of opportunities for personal development and character building.
Both primary and secondary enjoy excellent facilities on separate sites. The facilities available to pupils at each site are second to none. These include specialist teaching areas such as Science, ICT, PE and Drama on the secondary site and Food Technology on the primary site. The primary building has been already completed to an exceptional standard; and the secondary facilities wil be available for the start of the autumn term in 2018. We will open with 120 pupils in Year 7 and 30 in Year 3. The 26 place nursery is projected to open in September 2019.
The curriculum at Kents Hill Park School will reflect our view that all pupils should have a broad and balanced education all through their education. Specialist teachers will ensure that all national curriculum subjects are covered and that links between, and across, subjects and phases are carefully explored. We believe that pupils come to school to learn and that the learning experience should be exciting and enjoyable with each pupil enabled to reach their full potential.
Kents Hill Park School will be a happy, supportive and disciplined school where each child feels safe, secure and confident. It will be a school where children know that through hard work, involvement in extra curriculur activities and respect for others, they can develop into well-rounded and successful citizens.
