Inspection Reports

Duke of Kent School was inspected by the Independent Schools Inspectorate in January 2024 as part of a routine inspection. Following the results, we have been deemed to be fully compliant in every respect.

The school’s values, such as kindness and respect, are ‘front and centre’ and permeate all aspects of school life.

Quality of education, training and recreation

  • The curriculum is carefully planned and offers a wide and varied range of subjects and activities.
  • Teaching is planned with care and schemes of work are detailed and well structured. Teachers adapt these plans to meet the needs of individual pupils.
  • Teachers ensure pupils feel well supported and balance this with making sure they are challenged appropriately.
  • Teachers know pupils well and understand their needs.
  • Teachers give pupils challenging but appropriate targets and motivate pupils to achieve and exceed these targets.

Pupils’ physical and mental health and emotional wellbeing

  • Pupils’ wellbeing is a high priority for governors and school leaders.
  • Mental wellbeing and self-esteem are fostered by the school ethos and the strong relationships pupils have with their teachers who know them well.
  • Leaders actively promote good behaviour and the behaviour policy is well understood by staff and pupils.
  • Pupils are courteous and confident because leaders establish a climate of trust and support.

The school ethos is one which encourages pupils to work hard and to enjoy school life. Teaching and learning are combined with effective pastoral care which supports pupils to make good progress.
