Concern for the individual child has always been of paramount importance at Kent College. Our objective is to ensure every student has the opportunity to fulfil their potential, whether in the academic, artistic or sporting fields, or in the myriad of extra-curricular activities that are available to them. At the same time, we seek to develop a strong sense of moral responsibility and a set of beliefs to guide them through their lives.
Tutors are at the heart of the pastoral system, on entering the school, each child is assigned to a tutor group. These groups are chosen to be a mixture of both day and boarding boys and girls. In many cases, the tutor is likely to stay with that group for several years as they progress through the school. As a result, the tutor will establish an excellent relationship with each child and their parents.
Along with regular target setting and evaluation discussions with each pupil, the tutor is always available to discuss problems of any kind that may concern the child. They celebrate success with them and are on hand to give advice on the vital decisions that students and their parents have to make throughout their school career.
If any pupil feels the need for additional help and advice, the services of a highly qualified and experienced external counsellor are freely available on request.
