Hi

Would anyone have experience of children at the above schools and would be ok sharing some feedback? We’ve looked at all three but there’s no obvious one standing out for us. Thank you.

They are very different schools. I am genuinely surprised if you couldn't see much difference between Kent College and Sevenoaks.
Sevenoaks is very competitive to get into and really only suits motivated, confident and self-organised students. Sevenoaks does the IB and is very international. It is generally viewed as one of the best schools in the country. Sevenoaks is very strong at co-curricular activities (music, art. sports, etc). Girls sports are very strong in Sevenoaks. Sutton Valence and Kent College are smaller and less competitive so would generally suit a child who isn't performing at the top academically.

Thank you- it was Radnor House Sevenoaks, rather than Sevenoaks that I was asking about, but thank you for your message!

They are very different schools. You need to ask yourself what you are looking for; single sex or mixed, is a good starting point. If you have no preference then look at the strengths of the schools against your DD's interests for example I know that Sutton Valence is considered to be quite sporty.

I know people with/had DC at all three and all have been happy with their experiences - for what it's worth I went to what is now RH (back when it was a girl's convent school!) and the building and grounds are beautiful.
