About Benenden School


Founded in 1923, Benenden School has been one of the leading boarding schools in Britain for the last 90 years. The school occupies an impressive Victorian mansion situated in 240 acres of beautiful parkland, known as Hemsted Park, in the heart of Kent, known as the Garden of England.
The school is within easy reach of London, Brighton and Canterbury, and the bustling modern town of Royal Tunbridge Wells is a short drive away. It is also only an hour from Bluewater shopping centre.
