Information for Parents

The decision as to where to study after their GCSEs is a significant one. Leaving school is a big step. At West Kent College, we will give your child a safe, secure and friendly place to continue their education, and we welcome your involvement to help make this happen.

At our recent Ofsted inspection, we received six Grade 2 'Good' judgements, which included Teaching and Learning, our 16-19 study programme, our adult learning programmes, the provision for students with high needs and the personal development, behaviour and welfare of the students.  Our commitment is to support all our students to be successful.
