The Skinners' Kent Academy

Back

The Skinners’ Kent Academy is a popular, all-ability, 11-19 Academy in Tunbridge Wells.

The Academy is a non fee-paying school, funded directly by the Government and supported fully by its lead sponsor The Skinners’ School, a grammar school for boys in Tunbridge Wells, and the Skinners’ Company, one of the 12 great livery companies in the City of London.

The Skinners’ Kent Academy is founded on the principles of a culture of high standards and high aspirations, a culture of active participation, an emotionally rich learning environment and an inclusive environment where every child is known and every learner supported. We seek to make learning exciting and celebrate our innovative and distinctly internationally-focussed curriculum which sets us apart from many other schools.

Our stunning, state-of-the-art building is inspired by the Guggenheim Museum in New York, and has a range of facilities including: eight Science Labs, a Lecture Theatre with 3D capabilities, Radio Studio, Multi-Media Edit Suite and Drama Studio. High speed Wifi throughout the building enables students to use mobile devices to further their learning. Within the 29 acres of grounds there are outdoor learning spaces, an all-weather pitch and a multi-use games area with three floodlit netball courts.

The main aim of the Academy is to provide the highest quality of education for students in Year 7 to Year 13. In addition, the Academy aims to raise and reflect aspirations within the local community and provide educational, social and economic benefits for all.
