Lorenden Prep School is an "excellent" ISI graded school; a gem, tucked away in an enviable location but yet within easy reach of Faversham. Pupils benefit from open playing fields for playtimes as well as sports pitches and access to the forty acres of woodland Trustlands directly behind the school. Visit us and see how your children could thrive in this rich environment.

Introduction from the Head

First and foremost we believe that children need to be happy in order to learn and from the moment you step inside the school you can sense the friendly community that allows pupils to blossom.

We expect good manners, kindness and perseverance from everyone and our motto “We Care. We Share. We Strive. We Succeed.” underpins everything we do.

Approach to learning

Walk into any classroom at Lorenden and you will see children enjoying and engaging with their learning.  With small class sizes, teachers get to know pupils very quickly.

We have a strong record of pupils being awarded Grammar school places and in pupils receiving offers for a range of Independent School scholarships including Academic, Sport, Drama and Music.

Inspection reports

We are delighted to share our latest inspection report from November 2018 which covers Educational Quality and Focused Compliance.

We have achieved the very top grading that can be given to schools, that of 'excellent' for both graded categories - academic achievement and  personal development. We are also fully compliant.
