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 for 3 - 11 year olds with:

Highly qualified, experienced teachers in all classes, including 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.

Small classes, usually between 12-19 pupils, 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 5 and places are rewarded at highly regarded grammar schools,  although a number of pupils ultimately choose to continue in independent education....
