Benenden has been one of the leading boarding schools in Britain for over 80 years.
When, in 1923, three school mistresses founded the School, they set high educational standards and wanted Benenden to be a 'happy school with personal integrity and service to others always in mind, where everybody would be given the chance to follow her own bent.'
Benenden School has remained true to that vision ever since.
We now educate around 530 girls aged 11-18, who come from a variety of backgrounds. The School is situated in the Kent countryside in its own beautiful parkland, just over an hour from London and the major airports.
Here you will find information on many aspects of the School, from making your first visit, and the Admissions procedure; finding out news of events that have taken place at the School; details of the curriculum and our academic success; the importance we place on pastoral care; through to Sixth Form life and beyond to Higher Education.
