Welcome to Bennett Memorial
Bennett Memorial is a Church of England Aided Comprehensive School, one of the few in Kent. Our strong Christian ethos creates an outstanding climate for learning that results in excellent attitudes and behaviour, enabling students to achieve their own personal best.
We have several key features. We are:
A Church of England school, with most of our students coming from Christian families in West Kent and East Sussex
A high-achieving, comprehensive school, with 85% of our students obtaining higher-grade GCSE passes
A friendly and supportive community, where the keynotes are respect for one another
A busy community with a wide range of activities outside the classroom: especially in music, sport and drama
Bennett has a strong reputation and a commitment to ongoing improvement, to benefit all members of our community. We also want, as a Christian school, to set standards of awareness of the wider world, and to participate actively in raising support for those in need.If you want to follow up your visit to the website by a visit to the School, get in touch with us either by telephone (01892-521595), letter or email (email@example.com).
Bennett is a Church of England school for students of all abilities. Our mission is to be a distinctive, Church comprehensive school where:
- Christian values and standards provide the focus and inspiration for learning and for life;
- Excellence is the aim for all, and where students across the whole ability range can reach their full potential for academic and personal achievement;
- Mutual respect and a sense of responsibility towards one another and the wider world are developed.
Bennett seeks to become more fully a school where:
- All members of the school community recognise that Bennett is part of the broader Christian community, and that school life is underpinned by and celebrates beliefs and values which are of greater significance than the immediate contingencies of the contemporary world
- A Christian approach to education, learning and personal development informs all that the school does; this means that while communicating the shared values of the Christian community, the school must also ensure that learners realise their potential for learning and achievement in all areas of endeavour
- The highest standards of pedagogy are fostered and valued, and curricular provision is constantly reviewed and developed so that it best meets the needs and interests of learners. The focus in pedagogy is increasing learners’ independence through careful scaffolding of learning and an emphasis on transferable learning
- There is a special recognition for the importance of the teacher and other adults as personal role models and mentors for learners: a Christian view of education goes far beyond the learning of facts, skills and competencies, important as these are; it implies the importance of learning to live together in community
- Levels of achievement are high, and learners are able to leave the school with the best possible range of academic and other qualifications, so that they are enabled to realise fully their God-given potential and take leading roles in society
- A caring approach is taken to all members of the community, especially those most in need of support and nurturing; this care must recognise the needs of the whole person, including the spiritual dimension; all members of the community are encouraged and enabled to be ministers of this care to others
- A special emphasis is placed on development and achievement outside the academic curriculum; personal qualities, such as confidence, courage, collaboration and tolerance are indispensable, alongside academic qualifications, to maximise personal effectiveness
- The values of the Christian community underlie how learners behave towards each other: dialogue takes place constantly between learners and adults; the participation of learners in the formulation of behavioural norms and expectations is valued; ways of behaving towards other members of the community are modelled by teachers and other adults; the needs of the majority and the needs of the individual are both regarded as of supreme importance
- There is pride and self-belief at all levels of the community in the principles, traditions and achievements of Bennett, and a readiness to celebrate them and to project them ever more widely to parents, churches and the wider local community

Welcome to the Bennett Sixth Form
[Curriculum] [Courses] [Higher Education] [Academic Results] [F.A.Q]
The Sixth Form at Bennett Memorial School is a large, vibrant, mixed community offering a broad range of courses and an exciting program of enrichment and extra curricluar activities.
Every year we offer some twenty-five AS courses for year 12 students and a similar number of A2s for year 13. We run a range of trips, at home and abroad, for students, and there are opportunities to participate in sporting and cultural activities to suit all interests.
We recruit the majority of our students from the Bennett year 11, but we are also open to applications from students from other schools. Our aim is to provide a supportive, caring framework for learning and to cultivate open and mature working relationships between staff and students.
Our results are excellent, both in terms of overall pass rate, and the progress that students of all abilities make during their time in the Sixth Form.
We have long and successful experience of guiding students through the process of applying for places in further and higher education.
