Benenden is regarded as one of the leading boarding schools in Britain. Founded in 1923, we are situated in 250 acres of attractive parkland in Kent, the Garden of England, just an hour from London. There are 550 girls in the School, aged 11-18.
We offer every girl A Complete Education in which she realises her academic potential, grows as an individual and is well prepared for life beyond school.
This is achieved through an outstanding academic offering which will help your daughter to achieve her very best, together with unrivalled co-curricular opportunities and a dedicated focus on developing every girl's personal and professional skills.
Our boarding model is central to this Complete Education, as it builds a strong partnership between School and home.
We are proud to consistently hear that the girls at Benenden are happy and relaxed, and that there is a culture of 'stretch without stress'. Parents tell us that they simply 'got a feeling' when they visited Benenden that they knew it was the right school for their daughter. We would be delighted to welcome you to visit us to see Benenden for yourself.
It was not the extensive, manicured grounds or state-of-the-art facilities, or the exam results that most impressed us. It was the charming, confident, fulfilled and happy girls we met that convinced us we had concluded our school search.
