A supremely happy learning environment

Welcome to Lorenden

We care
We share
We strive
We succeed

Situated in the heart of the Kent countryside, near Faversham and surrounded by trustlands and apple orchards, Lorenden is a gem; a co-ed Prep School (Infants and Juniors) for 3 - 11 year olds with:

Highly qualified, experienced teachers in all classes, including nursery / preschool (Kindergarten), ensure pupils strive to achieve the best they can in all aspects of academic work as well as being happy, well-rounded, confident children who flourish at their choice of secondary school.

Exceptional learning in our Early Years department (Nursery (Kindergarten) / Reception) with continuous provision both inside and out - Click here to find out more. We are able to apply for Early Years funding of up to 15 hours per week for children attending the Nursery, subject to the children meeting the eligibility criteria.

Small classes, up to 16 pupils in Pre-Prep and 18 in Prep classes, ensure pupils are extremely well-known to their teachers and valued as individuals; nurtured and developed.

Forest School is a regular experience for all children in the forty acres of trustlands nestled behind the school.

Both boys’ and girls’ sport is very strong with both U9 and U11 girls almost unbeaten in both netball and hockey this year so far.

The Kent Test is taken by the majority of Year 6 and places are rewarded at highly regarded grammar schools,  although a number of pupils ultimately choose to continue in independent education....
