Message from our CEO

EKC Schools Trust brings to life a concept unlike any other in Kent. Our schools are able to retain their independence, making their own decisions, and remaining embedded within the community which they serve.

We believe wholeheartedly in the unique and individualised nature of these excellent schools, and as a consequence EKC Schools Trust works to help them retain and grow local relationships, and personalised approaches and curriculums while celebrating their distinctiveness. EKC Schools Trust really marks an exciting moment in education within Kent.
