Benenden’s unique academic programme aims to encourage a lifelong enthusiasm for learning and discovery. We have a curriculum that blends the very best of educational tradition with an innovative, enquiry-based cross-curricular approach that allows students to make connections, synthesise knowledge and develop advanced research skills.
Games & the Arts
The co-curricular programme is a key pillar of the Complete Education provided at Benenden. With more than 150 different activities to choose from, the provision is extensive. There are plenty of ways for pupils to try something new, extend their enthusiasms and develop lifelong interests. There truly is something for everyone.
Benenden prides itself on giving bespoke pastoral care to all students and on supporting their family ties. Pastoral care begins with an underlying ethos of consideration and kindness and is promoted when the staff work collaboratively for the good of the students. Pupils have a team of staff who offer them emotional, academic, social and practical support. Staff set out to develop firm, meaningful, nurturing relationships, beyond the normal realm of adult/student contact seen in many schools.
Benenden enjoys a thriving programme for Scholars including Academic awards and our most accomplished musicians, artists, actresses, designers and sportswomen. At Benenden, Scholarships are given to recognise talent and we are delighted to identify and reward that ability each year.
Head Teacher’s Philosophy
We work with every girl to discover and nurture the passion that will drive whatever path she might want to follow. We will support her in achieving more than she would have thought possible when she first entered the School and by that instil within her the self-belief that she can embrace her future with confidence.
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. 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.
