Our Learner Profile


The Kent College Learner Profile is a set of attributes and values that we encourage our whole community – students, staff and parents – to adopt. Our Learner Profile has been developed in collaboration with pupils and staff and equally reflects the KHDA’s vision for schools to develop 10 Key Character Traits.

These qualities are firmly embedded in learning and behaviour across our school. Pupils regularly consider the attributes of the Learner Profile and have a genuine understanding of each of the qualities, starting in the Foundation Stage and developing as the children move through the school.
