Rated ‘exceptional’ by the latest ISI report for teaching and learning, Sevenoaks School is a highly selective day and boarding school for girls and boys between 11 and 18 years old with a strong academic and co-curricular programme.

Located just half an hour away from London and nestled amid the lush Kent countryside, the school’s 100-acre campus is a haven where students grow both academically and personally in absolute confidence.

Small class sizes–the average number of students is 14 in grades 7-11 and 8-10 in the Sixth Form–and a dedicated and motivated teaching staff ensure academic excellence as well as the development of critical thinking and independent minds.

Students at Sevenoaks School are encouraged to hone their own natural talents and to pursue their dreams both in and out of the classrooms. Former alumni include professional sportsmen, renowned artists and members of the Belgium royal family.

This philosophy is backed up by fabulous facilities–a new Science and Technology Centre, and a Sixth Form Centre are due for completion in 2018–and a strong academic curriculum which offers more challenging, UCAS supported alternatives to GCSE’s called Sevenoaks School Certificates, as well as the International Baccalaureate Diploma.

In fact, Sevenoaks is one of the world’s top IB schools with their students receiving 39.2 points as their final scores; 10 points higher than the IB world average, and no mean feat when over 200 students take the programme each year.

It is therefore no surprise to know that 100% of the students choose to continue their studies after graduation and are offered places in some of the country’s top universities, including Oxford and Cambridge.

Co-curricular activities are equally important and the school provides excellent venues for that purpose including a fully equipped sports centre (The Sennocke Centre) and a 400-seat world-class performing arts centre (The Space).

Boarders are accommodated in 7 boarding houses and distributed by age and gender. Housemasters and Housemistresses supervise their well-being alongside a friendly team of house matrons, resident and non-resident tutors, and assistants. Furthermore, sport events as well as cultural and social activities are organised every weekend to make sure everyone enjoys a healthy lifestyle away from home.
