A stunning location in the heart of Kent
The school is situated in the Kent town of Sevenoaks, and has an excellent and most admirable location at the top of the High Street. The 40-hectare site, which includes a number of listed buildings, is beautifully landscaped and adjoins the medieval deer park of Knole. Sevenoaks School is just 30 minutes away from Central London and Gatwick Airport, and one hour’s drive from Heathrow Airport. With over 30 buildings, over 100 classrooms, 14 sports pitches, 12 lawns, six ponds and thousands of trees, it is a pleasant environment in which students can feel at home. The outdoor spaces are attractive, green and spacious, enhanced by sustainable planting, while the variety of buildings, learning areas and social spaces is characteristic of this historic but forward-looking school.
Airport transfers between Heathrow Airport, Gatwick Airport, St Pancras International Station and the school are included in the fees. Find out more about airport transfers here.
